The Pleiades, also known as the Seven Sisters:

> It is among the star clusters nearest to Earth... and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye in the night sky.

Only six stars in the cluster are visible to the naked eye yet mythology from several ancient cultures share the idea that one of the seven “sisters" is hidden. These two stars now appear as one to the naked eye which the author proposes is the source of the hidden sister. This dates the story to 100,000 years ago.
