My Morning Planetary Line-Up (7 November, 2015)

After days of cloud the sky finally cleared and I had a wonderful view of the line-up. In the images, if you look carefully, you can also see sigma Leo near Jupiter and beta Virginis (Zavijava) between Venus and Mars.

Didn't see any Taurid meteors, but did see a very nice Iridium flare near Sirius.  (image left 10 second exposure at 400 ASA, click to embiggen).

Hopefully the skies will be claer for tomorrow, when the Moon is close to Venus, and we can have a go at seeing Venus in the daylight.
