The Pleiades, the
most famous galactic star cluster in the heavens, is a cluster of bright,
white stars, all formed at the same time, within a large cloud of
interstellar dust and gas in the constellation of Taurus.
A blue haze accompanying the cluster is caused by a very fine dust
which reflects the blue light from the stars.
It is located in the shoulder of the bull Taurus, and can be found by
following the belt of Orion through the reddish star, Aldebaran.
Pleiades appears to be the first star group mentioned in astronomical
literature, appearing in the Chinese annals of 2357 B.C.
Job referred to them at least twice in his word Kimah.
The name Pleiades is believed to be derived from the Greek,
meaning either “sail,” “full,”or “many.”
Mythologies from cultures all over the world refer to The Pleiades:
Many cultures believe that
they are descended from humans residing on a planet within The Pleiades. The Pleiadian forefathers are said to have originated in the
Lyra-Vega Star Systems and have been visiting Earth sporadically for over
twenty-two million years. At
the present time, because they feel responsible for the development of
mankind on Earth, The Pleiadians are sharing their knowledge and wisdom with
us to help us rediscover the truth about ourselves and the universe.
