The constellation of Taurus, “The Bull,” lies along the winter Milky Way. It contains many objects, primarily open clusters, the most famous of which is The Pleiades. Another cluster, The Hyades, forms the head of the bull. The Crab Nebula with its bright center and ragged edges is a left-over from a supernova.
