Question: Thank you so much for lending your time so generously. My question is: Has Antares B ever been photographed?, it seems to be elusive because of the proximity to the red sister, but, are there photos of it, and where do astronomers place it exactly?.
Thank you again, would love an answer. Greetings from Spain. – Maria
Answer: Hello from the USA! I did a search for images of Antares B and did not find any. Note, though, that is is measured using other means, including spectroscopic measurements, that have the capabilities to separate the spectral signature of Antares A from B.
