A lovely stream of stars outlines Grus, the Crane, an
outstanding modern constellation.
Al Nair stands at the Crane's
right-hand foot, while Beta Gruis stands
at the left. The line-of-sight double up
and to the right of Beta is Delta Gruis, Delta-1 on the top,
Delta-2 on the bottom. First magnitude Fomalhaut, in Piscis Austrinus, is seen in the upper left-hand
corner. Grus has a star with an orbiting planet.
