Regulus and Io


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 smallest of Jupiter’s four Galilean moons, the most volcanic, and considered to be the driest object in the solar system.


I took these photos while setting up for tripod shots of the moon.
