NGC 1300 - next proposition. --Wiklol (talk) 21:21, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

new picture suggestion - Pleiades[edit]

In astronomy, the Pleiades, or Seven Sisters (Messier object 45), is an open star cluster containing middle-aged hot B-type stars located in the constellation of Taurus. It is among the nearest star clusters to Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye in the night sky.
