Mars, Saturn and Tiangong 1 (2 September 2012)

A bit of an different take on the Mars, Saturn and Spica formation. This time I shot them as the Chinese sort-of-space station, Tiangong 1, was going past.

Tiangong 1 is very faint, just above Arcturus (the bright star at bottom right). I've put a close up of the satellite in the upper right hand corner so you can see it better. 

Saturn and Spica are underneath the rose branch, Mars above. Click to embiggen.
