The star cluster below is a very famous one in mythology. There are different myths about how the came to be in various folklore.
Popular legend has it that they were the seven daughters of Atlas and Pleione.Orion met the mother and her 7 daughters in a forest and chased them everywhere. Zeus stepped him by transforming them into doves and setting them among the stars. It is said that one of the stars is not visible to the naked eye. According to one of the legends, distressed at the destruction of Troy, one of the sisters, Electra, veiled her face, abandoned her sisters and is supposedly only visible as a comet.
Irony: This cluster is called Kartikeya (literally, Son of the Kritikas) in Hindu folklore. The six stars represent the six mothers of Lord Kartikeya, who developed one face for each one of them.
In 1953, 5 companies in Japan came together to form one big company called Fuji Heavy Industries. The company found the star cluster depicted above to be representative of their merging and put the star cluster in their logo as is. The cluster is the shown below.
The company has also used the Japanese name for the star cluster for its automobile manufacturing division, and uses the same logo.
Look familiar? What is it (i.e. the name of the car division line which has the same logo?) –thanks 3ps
