Pleiades-newest addition to Ten Eyck Troop!

Adopted from the Humane Society, he is named for the open star cluster the Taurus constellation.  It is among the nearest star clusters to Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye in the night sky.  According to some sources, peleias refers to a dove (or doves plural) and "pel" means "dark colored or gray."
