💫Constellation Taurus

Taurus the Bull is a constellation of the Zodiac that you can see during Northern Hemisphere winter and spring (or Southern Hemisphere summer and fall) in the evening sky. The sun passes through the constellation Taurus from about May 14 to June 21, but you can’t see Taurus when the sun is within its borders. Instead, try looking for Taurus in the early evening sky at the opposite end of the year. To see Taurus, start by looking along the sun’s path. Just remember that, by definition, zodiacal constellations are those that mark the sun’s yearly path across our sky.

That’s what made them so important and special to the early stargazers – and it also will help guide your eye to these constellations in the night sky. Taurus is one of the most spectacular constellations in the nighttime sky. In addition to Aldebaran, Taurus has the intriguing star Elnath. Plus it has two fine star clusters, the Pleiades and the Hyades. And this constellation is the radiant point for the annual Taurid meteor shower in November. What’s more, Taurus also features the telescopic Crab Nebula (M1), the remains of a cataclysmic supernova explosion that lit up the daytime sky in 1054 A.D.
