How far of the Taurus form Earth?

How far of the Taurus form Earth?

Answer in light year...

Help me please....


The brightest star in the constellation of Taurus is Aldebaran (also known as Alpha Tau). An orange-red giant which is the thirteenth brightest star in the heavens, it was one of the four Royal Stars of the Ancient Persians. Aldebaran appears to lie among the Hyades (with which it was once categorized) but is actually much closer to the Earth than that cluster, being about 68 light years away. In Arabic, Aldebaran means "the follower" (of the Pleiades) and it marks the "ruddy eye" of the bull. Two other visible stars, Zeta Tau and Beta Tau denote the bull's horns, with Beta Tau (also known as El Nath) thought to be the "pushing" horn.
