Venus and the Pleaides, Tuesday April 3 2012

Venus near the Pleiades cluster on Tuesday, April 3 as seen from Adelaide at 7 pm local time. Images taken with a Canon IXUS 100 IS at 800 ASA and 6 seconds exposure, the right hand image on 4.9 x zoom (click to embiggen).

It's been quite hectic here over the past few days, with the exchange students and the ASCSA meeting. So I missed alerting people to the close approach of Venus and the Pleiades (well, it was in the weekly sky, but I usually add a special update). Tomorrow Venus and the Pleaides will still be close, so it is well worth a look.
