Pleiades

Standard

I love the myth of the Plieades and this is the best picture I’ve ever seen of them, plus Mars (I’m an Aries) is in there along with a brilliant Persiad meteor. Click on it to see it better.

About mrpeenee

A former bon vivant and terror of a number of New Orleans bars in the mad, gay 1980s, I'm now quietly retired and widowed in San Francisco. I have a crooked nose due to an unfortunate Frisbee accident.

  1. Lovely. They have a little place in my heart too.There’s mention of them in the poemthat gave me the title of my webpage, in fact…one of my favorite poems…by the immortal Sappho herself:“The Moon and the Pleiadesare set. Night is halfgone and time speeds by.I lie in bed, alone.”
