Pleiades, in astronomy, a cluster of stars in the constellation Taurus. With a telescope, several hundred stars are visible in the cluster. However, only six stars can be easily seen with the unaided eye. On a very clear night, several more can sometimes be seen. Alcyone is the brightest star in the Pleiades. Bright nebulae (clouds of gas and dust) surround several of the stars in the cluster.
Stars are enormous celestial bodies hot enough to register millions of degrees. They're fascinating scientific phenomena, but is it actually possible for scientists to create them?
The changing phases of the moon have given us an enduring curiosity about the dark side of the moon. But is there really a dark side of the moon? What would we see there?
