Pleiades are actually one of the nearest star clusters to Earth: only 430 million light years away. These stars are B-type, medium aged to rather young stars (born an estimated 100 million years ago) that are hot and shine with a blue white luminosity.
Many stars in this cluster shine hundreds of times brighter than our Sun. Their sparkling appearance is made even brighter because the cluster is presently passing through a nebulous dust cloud known as the Maia Nebula, a reflective Nebula of dust and gases that makes them shimmer and sparkle like diamonds in the sky.
