Inside of Taurus, the constellation, you can find the Crab Nebula. Interesting fact, this celestial body was also the site of a supernova recorded by astronomers in 1054, which isn't that hard considering that it's only about 6,500 light-years from Earth. The Crab Nebula hides, at its core, the Crab Pulsar, a 30 km wide neutron star that is spinning at 30 times a second.
