Visibility II / V

Tuomas Salo, Ursa (Helsinki)

I photographed the star Regulus, the main star of the constellation Leo. It consists of three stars of the main series of different sizes. It is the 21st brightest star in the starry sky. The name is Latin and means little king, as it was previously believed to rule the events of heaven.
