Pleiades, Italy 2018

The Pleiades are an open cluster observable in the constellation of Taurus. It is a very luminous and close cluster (440 light years) and all its white/blue components are surrounded by light reflection nebulae.
In mythology the Pleiades are seven sisters, including Alcione, which gives its name to a D'Annunzio's work.
