Moon and Pleiades above the Easter Island

By: Stephane Guisard

 

Region: Australia and Pacific

Site: Easter Island - Chile

Date: July 2010

Through passing clouds the Moon and Pleiades star cluster (Seven Sisters) briefly appear above the Easter Island. Its a bizarre experience to stand besides these giant statues which are locally called Moais. They are dated back to 13th to 15th century from the lost ancient civilization of this isolated Pacific Ocean island. Stephane Guisard - Astrosurf.com/sguisard
