More info

Taurus (in Latin Taurus, symbol ♉) is one of the constellations of the zodiac. It is large and prominent in the northern winter sky, between Aries in the west and Gemini in the east; to the north are the Perseus and Auriga, to the southwest Orion and to the southeast Eridano and the Whale.

The constellation contains the open cluster of the Pleiades, the best known and most studied, as well as the brightest among the open clusters historically recognized as such; in Taurus there is also the cluster of Hyades, which holds the primacy of cluster nearest known open.

Although Aries came to represent specifically the ram whose fleece became the Golden Fleece of Ancient Greek mythology, it has represented a ram since late Babylonian times. Before that, the stars of Aries formed a farmhand. Different cultures have incorporated the stars of Aries into different constellations including twin inspectors in China and a porpoise in the Marshall Islands. Aries is a relatively dim constellation, possessing only four bright stars: Hamal (Alpha Arietis, second magnitude), Sheratan (Beta Arietis, third magnitude), Mesarthim (Gamma Arietis, fourth magnitude), and 41 Arietis (also fourth magnitude). The few deep-sky objects within the constellation are quite faint and include several pairs of interacting galaxies. Several meteor showers appear to radiate from Aries, including the Daytime Arietids and the Epsilon Arietids.
