After being clouded/rained out on the early pat of the Planet Dance (4th and 5th), the 6th and 7th were clear, the 6th stunningly so. Had to go out to the opera on the 6th (the Co-opera group which gave a recital of "The Clemency of Tito" at the Port Adelaide Flour Warehouse - not a high culture event) so I couldn't get images of the Moon and Jupiter close together.

The colours in the sky on Saturday the 6th were stunning, on Sunday the 7th there was a lot of horizon cloud, nd I had to wait until a bit later for Venus to come out from behind the cloud, so the effect was not as pronounced.
