Jupiter, Venus and Mercury Together.

Mercury and Venus were prefect this morning, no peek-a-boo with clouds or anything. The image to the right shows them glowing above the street. Jupiter is top left, Venus is the obviously bright object middle left, Mercury is just to the left of that (you may need to click on the image to enlarge it for Mercury to become obvious).

An animation of the planets rising above the street is here (1.6 Mb).

Below is a sequence of Venus and Mercury from 26th to 28th February. The images are aligned on the fixed stars. You can see Venus sinking towards the horizon, and Mercury not sinking so fast.

Prefect? Ford Prefect, I presume?
