Jupiter, the bright object in the center, and Saturn (lower right) are visible in the constellation of the bull. The open star clusters of the Plejades (right hand side) and the Hyades (lower center with the bright red giant Aldebaran in between) give the golden gate of the ecliptic where the giant planets are crossing through in the years 2000 and 2001.
