A young couple enjoys watching the night sky above the shore of Atlantic Ocean in Rio de Janeiro state of Brazil. Notable in the sky is the prominent figure of the Southern Cross and two bright stars of Alpha and Beta Centaurui. The brighter of the two, Alpha Centauri is the closest star system to the Sun at 4.37 light years away, still more than 40 million million kilometers away! Babak Tafreshi/Dreamview.net
