Venus, Mercury and Jupiter 8 August 2015
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.
