This scene shows you the Pleiades and Hyades in the constellation of Taurus rising from the eastern sky under Moonlight of the last quarter at dawn in July. At that time two planets of Venus and Saturn were glittering just near the Hyades. The V-shaped bull's face showed us rather different appearance from the normal.
