Is Pleiades and Orion drawing nearer? I do not recall Pleiades being so nearly in front of Orion's bow. As they travel thru the night sky, I notice Pleiades looking like it is lining up with Orion's bow, as if it is an arrow being shot.
Now, I may have just made the connection because I am a slow observer-learner (but i never forget
). I have, however, been faithfully-watching these two wonderful groupings since the winter of 1997 and I don't recall them being situated as they are now, especially as they meet at near zenith and start their setting in the west each nite.
Another question, is Orion's right shoulder different in color as compared to 10 years ago?. It seems like it has changed a bit, but once again this may be my lack of attention to detail over the years.
