This discovery has implications for theories of star and planet formation, and for the dynamics of our Milky Way.The yellow-orange star Iota Horologii, located 56 light-years away towards the southern Horologium ("The Clock") constellation, belongs to the so-called "Hyades stream", a large number...

Not counting Aldebaran, approximately 300 stars are known or suspected to be members of the cluster; most are not visible to the naked eye. The stars of the Hyades are associated with one...
