Palm Trees and Stars, Makena Beach, Maui, Hawaii
Palm Trees and Stars, Makena Beach
The moon glows behind a coconut palm tree (Cocos nucifera) as thousands of stars shine above Makena Beach on the island of Maui, Hawaii. Several major stars are visible in this image, including Pleiades, a tight cluster of blue stars that is visible just left of the largest palm tree on the right side of the image, and Aldebaran, a bright orange star near the top-center of the frame. Pleiades is also known as the Seven Sisters even though the cluster contains more than 1,000 stars; the nine brightest stars are named for the Seven Sisters of Greek mythology and their parents. The star cluster is one of the closest to Earth and it formed within the last 100 million years. Both Aldebaran and Pleiades are located in the constellation Taurus.
