Two Goats Observatory
The Great Cluster in Hercules, M13 contains about 200,000 plus stars.
The Pleiades or seven Sisters, the daughters of Atlas. After Atlas was forced to carry the heavens on his shoulders, Orion began to pursue all of the Pleiades, and Zeus transformed them first into doves, and then into stars to comfort their father. The constellation of Orion is said to still pursue them across the night sky.
