Dance of the planets (Part 5)
Walking home from the train I could see Venus and the thin crescent Moon playing peekaboo with the cloud (unlike Monday, when they were completely invisible behind thick cloud). As usual, click the image for a larger version
But come out they did, inconveniently during dinner of course, but I made a nice little animation of them setting above the neighbours house. By the time I did this of course, all the interesting clouds had gone, so the animation looks a little flat.
Keep you eye on the western horizon over the next few days as Mars, Venus and Mercury come closer together.
