Venus, Antares, Saturn and the Moon (2 and 3 November, 2016)
Venus has moved up from the spectacular line up of the 28th, and has formed a nice triangle with Saturn and Antares. It was joined by thin crescent Moon on the 2nd and 3rd.
Of course, I was sick as a dog then, I was able to stumble out and take these two shots, before crawling back into bed, and have only now just processed them. They turned out fairly well considering I paid virtually no attention to the process (I had intended to go down the beach and do reflections and artistic stuff before I got sick, but shuffling out to the back yard stretched my capabilities to the limit).
Anyway, do embiggen the images, the extra detail is worth it.
Venus will continue to rise towards the "teapot" of Sagittarius, heading for a meeting with the lagoon nebula this weekend.
