The above covers everything we know about 66 Beta Tau. To the best of my knowledge, neither the world nor its inhabitants were pictured. We don't know to what degree the Shi'ar assault was effective on this world, and the Shi'ar eventually left the Kree galaxy.
We also don't know if 66 Beta Tau was a planet, a planetoid, a moon, or something else. We don't know if had an indigenous population before the Kree arrived there.
66 Beta Tau was lumped in the same description as Cybal Magna, as both were assaulted by ground forces of Shi'ar Battlegroup Nine.
Beta is the second letter in the Greek Alphabet, and Tau the 18th. Presumably the planet received those names as they are translations from some older Kree language/alphabet (and the "English" translation would be the Greek alphabet letters)...as there is pretty much zero reason for the Kree to be using the Greek alphabet...
Maybe some writer will read this someday and flesh it out somewhat.
