THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — The Seven Sisters star cluster  is easily seen the naked eye by most of us in the Northern Hemisphere — visible in the wintertime almost directly overhead sometime during the night. More formally known as the Pleiades, its visible through most cities’ light pollution as well. The cluster of 7 stars take up an area about the size of two full moons. The cluster lies near the zodiac belt which means the planets and the moon (and the sun as well) travel by it frequently making it easy to spot or identify planets!
