delta sco

Hi all,
I don't observe delta sco, but i notice now, close to the moon, that it looks definitely brighter than antares.
Does that happen often, in recent years?

Hi Alan, I wonder if you

Hi Alan,

I wonder if you might have mistaken Saturn for Delta Scorpii, as I briefly did last night? Saturn is a degree or two from Delta Scorpii at the moment.

Delta Sco state

I think Carey is right.

I follow the three objects (yes, I make estimates of Saturn! ;)) and they are as follows:

Saturn: 0.3 V
Antares: 1.0 V
Delta Sco: 1.7 V

Delta Sco is very bright this season and rather stable for the last couple of months but definitely not brighter than Antares.

Cheers,
Sebastian
