Southern Sky Jewels: The Southern Pleiades

Night sky enthusiast have all at one time or another heard of the Pleiades, also called the Seven Sisters. Did you know there is a Southern Pleiades? While looking at Jason Brown's beautiful night sky photos I came across one titled "The Southern Pleiades". Perplexed I quickly asked Jason, who is my southern sky guy, about it and said "The Southern Pleiades is that even a thing?" He said yes indeed it was a thing. It happens to be a pretty amazing thing from the Southern Hemisphere I found out.
