Tic Tac Toe

Three in a row.

Starting from the top right side (to the right of the plane streaking it’s way upward) is Pleiades (seven sisters). Down and to the left a tad, Jupiter above the Hyades star cluster. Following the line drawn from Pleiades and Hyades, you’ll come to the Orion constellation. The pink blur in the center of his sword is the Orion Nebula. All in an almost straight line. There are several other amazing things hidden in this photo.

Play “Where’s Waldo” with it.. find M1 and M78. M1 being the Crab Nebula, a remnant of a recent supernova (star = boom) and M78 being an open cluster of stars. Many other things as well.
