The Pleiades, in the constellation of Taurus and has been an object of fascination throughout human history. The Pleiades cluster is one of the best known sights in the night sky and is met with glee when first seen rising in the east at the start of the northern hemisphere’s autumn observing season.This lecture starts with a historical overview of the oldest known representations of this glistening cluster of young stars. It goes on to discuss some of the better known myths and legends associated with the group. Drawing on scientific papers, the lecture then lays out some of our current knowledge about the Pleiades including their evolution, properties and the possible fate of this most beautiful open cluster. The talk is an excellent choice for a mixed audience, with a good mix of general astronomical knowledge, myths and stories, and cutting edge science.
