Cascading veils of dust obscure the view of one of the Pleiades (Merope) and scatter bluish light from this hot star. The Pleiades, visible each evening in the fall and winter, is a cluster of very young stars that lies only 440 light years away. The sensuous curves of this nebula are reminiscent of the ethereal tunics the daughters of Atlas (the Pleiades) wore before being immortalized in the heavens. (See “Pleiades” by painter Elihu Vedder).
