Today's APOD (http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/) contains bad astronomy! Wow!
"The bright star left of center is Aldebaran."
Look at the Hyades. Look at "Aldebaran". Go outside and look at Taurus.
Aldebaran is the second brightest star in the field, just below Saturn, which they're calling Aldebaran.
Clicking this link will show you that star field with Saturn in a different place. Note Aldebaran in the Hyades, not above the cluster.
