Zubenelgenubi

No I haven't just typed a random selection of letters on my keyboard! Zubenelgenubi is one of the most interesting star names that I know of (although Zubeneschamali comes close). Just the other week I noticed that zubenelgenubi.com had been bought up by one of those domain naming companies that just sit on the name hoping that someone will come along to pay them lots of money for it.

Anyway, enough of the complaints and back to the point. I just noticed that today's astronomy picture of the day shows Zubenelgenubi near the eclipsed Moon. The two Zubenes are in Libra and used to form the northern and southern claws of Scorpius.
