Venus and Elnath Setting at Twilight
Clear but slightly hazy sky on Friday evening provided an opportunity to watch Venus and the nearby bright ‘blue-giant’ star Elnath (Beta Tau) setting behind Transmitter Hill in deep sunset twilight. The two other stars faintly visible in the picture near the transmitter masts are Theta Auriga (top) and Nu Auriga (below).
