When the Moon met the Seven Sisters

As I told you in my previous post about the When the Moon meets the Seven Sisters, program of the virtual telescope, it was conducted by Dr. Gianluca Masi from his backyard observatory in Ceccano, Italy. However the bad weather affected the event, as a matter of fact !

The event was attended by many people from different nooks and corners of the planet, building up a nice audience for the M45-Moon encounter. I was also a part of the audience and I managed to create a video where Gianluca Masi is speaking about Pleiades.

I think many of you have already witnessed the following material last night ! However I thought of posting them here as well.

Here is an awesome image of the Moon, displayed by Gianluca. This had been taken earlier some other day and we could have had cool pictures if the weather had been better.

This is the video that I created last night, when Dr. Gianluca Masi was providing the narration/ commentary of the open cluster M45 (Messier Object 45)- The Pleiades the "Seven Sisters"

And thank you Dr. Gianluca Masi for the wonderful efforts in taking this initiative and continuing it despite unavoidable weather circumstances!!
