strictlyastronomy:

The Moon joins Saturn, Mars, and the Scorpion’s Claws on the night of Sunday, 31 August. Looking toward the southwest after dusk on Sunday night, it will be easy to see the waxing crescent Moon form a compact, equilateral triangle with the two bright planets. But look a little further afield and find the two brightest stars in the constellation Libra, α and β Librae. These stars are known by their Arabic names “Zubenelgenubi" and "Zubeneschamali,” meaning the Southern Claw and the Northern Claw. These names refer to the ancient Greek concept of the constellation Scorpius; other ancient cultures saw them as a balance (Libra). The Bablyonians saw them as as scales sacred to the god Shamash, while the Romans thought Libra symbolized the scales held by Astraea, the goddess of justice.

Zubenelgenubi reveals itself to be a fine double star when viewed through an ordinary pair of binoculars. Zubeneschamali is less visually attractive, but may not have always been: Eratosthenes wrote that Beta Librae was brighter than Antares, the brightest star in Scorpius, in his time. Ptolemy, writing 350 years later, said it was as bright as Antares. It is unknown whether Antares became brighter or if Zubeneschamali dimmed in brightness.  It appears to have been steady for the ~2,000 years since Ptolemy.

Most of us know that California and many other western states are in a state of severe drought, but visualizing the crisis is a different story.

Getty Images photographer Justin Sullivan captured these dramatic aerial shots of California’s reservoirs and placed them side-by-side with images taken several years ago.
