Venus and Mercury, June 16, 2013

Venus and Mercury as seen from Largs Bay, Adelaide on 16 June at 5:50 ACST. This was taken with my Canon IXUS at  ASA 400 and 0.4 of a second exposure. You will need to click to embiggen to see Mercury in this shot.Venus and Mercury as seen from Largs Bay, Adelaide on 16 June at 5:55 ACST. This was taken with my Canon IXUS at 3x Zoom, ASA 400 and 0.6 of a second exposure. Unfortunately the dust on the CCD chip ruins the picture a bit. The colours were more vivid in real life.

 After more cloud finally got a view of Venus and Mercury together. they are closing in on Each other and will be closest on the 22nd. Venus is really quite easy to see now.
