      I'm assuming you want everything on my lists. These are everything but the novae and exoplanet stars and most of the deep-sky objects (there seem to be a good many alignments with galaxies on Diana R.'s black hole list).

      Many of these star names are my own coinages (I've put their official designations next to them in parentheses).

      I've marked with arrows the stars that seem to be relevant to this situation.

      First eruption:

      Celaeno (16 Tauri)
      Merope (23 Tauri)
      Taygeta (19 Tauri)

      (a lot of people may not have died, but due to disruptions in medical flights, they might)
