EPOD for 1st April 2009 – the “37” cluster in Orion

It does look like an artificial grouping of stars to make up the number 37 – but the group of stars at the centre of this image are for real and clearly show the number 37, proving Douglas Adams although very close with 42 – was actually slightly out.  The 37 cluster is today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day (APOD) – thank you Jim for a good choice of image on this April Fool’s Day.  The 37 cluster can be found residing in the constellation Orion.
