Taurus is certainly one of the more spectacular constellations to adorn the nighttime sky. In addition to sporting two intriguing stars, Aldebaran and Elnath, and two fine star clusters, the Pleiades and the Hyades, this constellation is the radiant point for the annual Taurid meteor shower in November.
