A familiar place

That's the Pleiades, a star cluster that can be seen with the unaided eye from northern climes on Earth (or so they say).

The reason I put the photo up, other than its stunning beauty, is that a significant portion of book two of the sci-fi series I'm writing takes place there. It all happens on a planet called Blue.

Just think of the fun you'll have when you finally get to read it. I'm thinking 2015 for that book. Still hoping to publish the prequel, The Worlds, by Xmas, 2014. 

Visit NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day site to see similar images. I go there daily. So should you.
