This cosmic vista stretches 20 degrees across constellation Taurus. It begins at the Pleiades and ends at the Hyades, two of the best known star clusters in planet Earth's sky. On top, the lovely Pleiades star cluster is about 400 light-years away. In a familiar celestial scene, the cluster stars shine through dusty clouds that scatter blue starlight. At bottom, Hyades cluster looks more spread out compared to the compact Pleiades and lies much closer, 150 light-years distant. Beautiful…
