Venus, Mercury and Jupiter 8 August 2015

Venus (left) Jupiter (bottom right) and Mercury (top right). You will have to click on the image and embiggen it to see them properly. Canon IXUS 400 ASA 0.4 Seconds exposure at around 6:15 pmClose up of Venus (left) Jupiter (bottom right) and Mercury (top right). Canon IXUS 400 ASA 0.4 Seconds exposure 3 x Zoom at around 6:17 pm.

The weather finally cleared briefly on the 8th so I got a glimpse of Venus, Jupiter and Mercury on the horizon for long enough to get a photo. No chance to get the scope out though to see Venuses ultra thin crescent.

The skies had cleared briefly the night before, so I could see Jupiter and Mercury side by side as I was walking home, but I had no chance to image them.

Now it is back to our regularly scheduled rain and cloud.
