Taurus, the Bull, from
Bayer's Uranometria of 1603.
The Hyades cluster makes the head, Aldebaran the Bull's eye. The
Pleiades is just up and to the right. The top portion of Orion
appears at lower left. The Milky Way runs down and to the left just
to the left of Taurus.
The horizontal dashed line is the ecliptic, while
the broad dark band
at the top centered on the ecliptic shows the region
in which the Moon and planets can be found. |
