Venus over Aldebaran

I was trying to find Comet Neowise but there were clouds close to the horizon that blocked it. This is Venus over the orange giant star Aldebaran, from 'Al Dabaran' (الدبران) which means 'the follower' in Arabic, since it seems to follow the Pleiades. The image is not really the discs of either Venus or Aldebaran, just that they are slightly out of focus.
