Venus in the Scorpion
Well, due to lousy weather I missed Venus next to delta Scorpii. But tonight the sky was finally clear, and I got a reasonable shot of Venus in the Scorpion. Mrecury is also reasonably clear now (but had set by the time I had a chance to phtograph it). Venus will continue its climb through the Scorpion and on Monday October 17 Venus will be next to Antares. Quite a sight, also, that is the night of the partial Lunar eclipse. With an ISS pass, an iridium flare and a Shenzou 6 pass, Monday will be a night of astronomical fun.
