Moon and Mercury in a Pool
Eldest one was up early this morning, so I tried to show him Mercury, after a while he said "I can't see it, you just have eyes for seeing stars, dad". That cheered me up immensly.
A conventional image of the Moon and planets is below.
Mars, The Moon and Mercury in the morning. You will have to click on the image to get the larger version so you can see them clearly, but they are just visible on my monitor in the thumbnail.
On going to the nothern hemisphere, the thing about the sky that disturbed me most was the "upside down" Moon.
