Regulus is the brightest star in the constellation Leo. It is a multiple star system consisting of four stars. Regulus A is a binary star which has a blue-white appearance, and is best seen in the northern hemisphere during late-winter and spring.
Io is the fourth-largest of Jupiter’s four Galilean moons, the most volcanic; and considered the driest object in the solar system.
I took these photos while setting up for tripod shots of the moon.
