The Turtle

Just came in from a quick look at the stars with my daughter and I am pleased to anounce that the Pleiades are now known as the Turtle

I wish my eyes were a bit younger. Looking around she picked out a red looking star which I have identified using Stellarium as nPup. Just to the left of this she could see three stars. At first I didn't see them but on close inspection I could see only two. A quick look through the binos confirmed that there are three there.

So, how good are your eyes
The stars in question are HIP35363, HIP35226 & v2Pup
