Maia is a star in the constellation Taurus. It is the fourth brightest star in the Pleiades open star cluster. The name Maia originates with the Latin: Maia. She is one of the seven daughters of Atlas and Pleione in Greek mythology—stars which are also included in the Pleiades star cluster. Maia was the oldest of seven beautiful sisters known as the Pleiades. As Maia and the Pleiades are visible in the winter night sky along with the constellation Orion, the Greek myths tell of Maia and her sisters being pursued by the giant huntsman, and turned into doves to preserve their safety.
