The Pleiades—or Seven Sisters—star cluster can easily be seen nearly overhead at midnight on Halloween.
(Shown at midnight during late October/early November for mid-Northern latitudes. The dashed vertical red line marks the meridian, an imaginary line running from due South to due North. The inset shows a binocular view of the star cluster.)
