Finally got up for the line-up of Jupiter, Venus and Mars. Despite the mournful hoots of the fog horns the sky was clear and the mist did not come over until later.  The line up was very lovely this morning. Sadly, the ISS pass was a bust, it should have been bright and easily visible, but I saw naught!

Life intervened so I didn't get to look for 2015 TB145 (instead of setting up remote telescope time I was talking to the Parafeild Air League about finding your way around the sky), but at least I saw the line-up. This will keep on getting better. on November 3 Mars and Venus are closest, and on the 7th and 8th the Moon joins the line up.
