My Hazy Morning Planetary Line-Up (8 November, 2015)

The line-up of Jupiter, crescent Moon,  Mars, and Venus and Jupiter at 5:15 am (Venus is the brightest object in the scene aside from the Moon). Canon IXUS 400 ASA, 2 second exposure.

Once again my luck held and the sky was mostly clear, there wasa bit of thin cloud about, so the scene was hazier than yesterday, but otherwise beautiful. In the images, if you look carefully, you can also see sigma Leo near Jupiter and beta Virginis (Zavijava) between Venus and Mars.

Seeing daytime Venus was a bust, the thin haze was enough to stop me seeing the Moon, let alone Venus.
