Abell 426, the Perseus Cluster of galaxies.
The Perseus Cluster, NGC 1275, near Medusa's Head, was centered at 28 Taurus 44 in 2000, and is now 28 Taurus 53; you may have heard of the harsh potentials of this part of the sky, but also consider that Perseus was called "The Hero, The Rescuer"):
This may have been the Mercury of Buddha (if born in 563BCE ), and here as well are chart elements of 12th-century philosopher-talmudist-physician Moses ben Maimon (Maimonides), author of the Mishneh Torah, 13th-century militant Japanese Buddhist priest, prophet and saint Nichiren Daishonin (persecuted, exiled), 13th-century warrior-martyr Joan of Arc, 17th-century pantheist philosopher Baruch Spinoza, 18th-century Shaker religious leader Mother Ann Lee, Jewish theologian Martin Buber, 18th-century historian-philosopher David Hume, transcendentalist H D Thoreau, social philosopher Auguste Comte, naval officer-evangelical pastor Martin Niemoller (resisted the Nazis, survived the concentration camps), Dietrich Bonhoeffer, heroic anti-Nazi minister (imprisoned, hanged); mystic author, universalist and Hindu saint Ramakrishna, religious reformer John Calvin, mystic and religious leader Meher Baba, yogi Paramahansa Yogananda, mystic Baba Muktananda, existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre (became blind), and restless, anguished Episcopal Bishop James A Pike (perished in the Judaean desert wilderness searching for "the historic Jesus"), courageous NY Fire Dept chaplain Mychal Judge, killed at the World Trade Center attack while giving last rites to a firefighter, and saintly Capuchin friar Padre Pio, known for healings. This was Mars at the 629 CE Aries Ingress the year Chinese Buddhist monk Hsuan Tsang (Xuan-Zang) set out on a perilous pilgrimage - on foot, horseback, camel and elephant - to India: after years of study he became a reknowned Buddhist sage, returned to China in 645 in triumph, and spent the rest of his life translating sacred Sanskrit texts into Chinese; Saturn at Joseph Smith’s vision of an angel in 1823 that led him to found the Church of Christ (Mormon), Pluto in 1876 when the Virgin appeared to three children at Marpingen, Germany, Uranus when the 1st vision of the Lady of Lourdes appeared to St Bernadette in 1858, and Mercury and Venus at the 1st appearance of Virgin Mary to three peasant children at Fatima, Portugal in 1917.
