Venus and Beta Capricornii
A greatly over exposed Venus lurks next to Beta Capricornii in this image th visual double star alpha Caprciornii is off to the left. (click to enlarge) On Saturday morning Venus will eb right next to Beta Cap. If you are up to see this, catch the NASA TV webcast of the arrival of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
