To the unaided eye, at 7 p.m. as January opens, Jupiter remains in Taurus above the considerably fainter first-magnitude star Aldebaran, located 65 light-years away. Although not a true member, Aldebaran is situated among the Hyades, a V-shaped star cluster. The Hyades are about 90 light-years farther away than Aldebaran, and located along the same line of sight. If you have access to a pair of binoculars, have a good look. The planet, bright star, and star cluster form a very pretty sight.
