[see Job 38:31a] - "Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades,...? Constellations are seen by those on the Earth as a "snap-shot" of the movement of stars, which may be seen to stay in the same relative positions for centuries, because of their distance from Earth. Most stars move in random directions relative to each other, even though they're moving away from the center of the "Big Bang"; they DON'T move in groups. The Pleiades, however, is a group of about 250 stars which ALL MOVE TOGETHER, in the same direction, and at the same speed! It's the only star group of its type in existance - and it's mentioned, by name, by God. (Things that make you say, "Hmm...".)

Arcturus is also a "run away" star system; it's travelling at about 12 times the speed of other stars in its local area - interesting that God just happens to mention this star, isn't it?
