Antares and the shed

Popped out early morning to watch the space station go over - finally catching up with her after a long run of poor weather. Bitterly cold -4. Few birds of note seen along Ashlawn Ridge and Cock Robin Wood.
It don't look much but the picture below is Antares a red giant in the constellation of Scorpius some 550 light years away and a better effort than my attempt at the Space Shed just 267 miles away.

Unfortunately travelling at 4 and half miles per second I had a hard time following her.
