More images of the massing
Well, the clouds have finally rolled in, so I'm taking a break from planetary massings. these pictures are from Wednesday 29, I didn't have time to upload them yesterday. Top one is normal, bottom one is 3x Zoom. Mercury is above Venus (the brightest dot) and Staurn is off to the left. Click on the image for a larger version. I wonder if I can make an animation of this sequence? Pop over to APOD for an beautiful shot of the massing with exquisite sunset colours.
Of course, the clouds will hang around so I can't image the double shadow transit of Jupiter tomorrow, or the Occultation of the Pleiades Sunday morning.
