The vee-shaped head of Taurus, the Bull, dominated by the
reddish star Aldebaran, is to the right of center with
Hyadum I (Gamma) at its point. Theta, which consists of Theta-1 on top,
Theta-2 on the bottom (note the elongation of the image), sits between
Aldebaran and Gamma.
Taurus's northern horn, represented by Elnath, lies at center
left, Zeta toward lower left, down and to the left of the
bright body, which is Saturn,
which was moving through Taurus when the picture was taken. The
head of Taurus is a star cluster called the
(150 light years away), of which Alebaran is
not a member. At the top is a more famed cluster, the more-distant
"Seven Sisters," its brightest star Alcyone. Ain (Epsilon) is just
above Aldebaran, while Lambda Tauri is
the brightest star to the right of the end of the Hyades. A line continued
from the Hyades through Lambda points at 30 Tau.
Within the upper part of the Hyades' "vee" is a triplet of
stars, from right to left Delta-1 (Hayadum II), Delta-2, and Delta-3.
Kappa is the brighest of the triplet up and to the left of Ain.
119=CE Tau lies within the set of fainter stars below Saturn.
Xi and Omicron Tauri lie off the picture to the right, appearing just
east of the head of Cetus.
Southern Auriga lies toward upper left. Chi-1 and Chi-2 Orionis are the upper stars of the twin pairs near the lower left corner and are seen on the image of Gemini as well. Omicron-1 Tau lies down and to the left of Aldebaran. The Galaxy's anticenter (the point opposite the Galactic center in Sagittarius) is at center left just over the border of Auriga, while the Summer Solstice lies toward the lower left corner above Chi-2 Ori. The open cluster M35 in Gemini hovers at the lower left edge to the left of the Solstice.
