Double Open cluster
This cluster was first recorded by Hipparchus, but that’s only
part of it. Most historians feel they were known long before his
recording. Both are located some 7,600 light-years from us.
Astronomers figure these youngsters are approx 12.5 million years old
and only a few hundred light-years apart.

think this is one of my favorites and I’m not ashamed one
bit. I think they are beautiful. Located between Perseus
and Cassiopeia, these beauties are easy to find. Use a small
telescope and check these guys out and you too will fall for the
