My View of the Cloudy Conjunction of Venus and Jupiter (1 July 2015)
Most of the day was sunny with mostly blue skies and light hazy cloud, teasing me with the promise that I might just see tonight's conjunction. Right until sunset, when the cloud thickened.
There was a brief thinning of the cloud around 6:30 pm which allowed me to get these shots. You can just see Regulus if you embiggen them, with the unaided eye I could see Venus, and briefly just see Jupiter in the glow. In binoculars I could make both out before the cloud closed in.
Compare this shot with those from June the 28th, 21st and 20th.
I suppose I will just have to enjoy everyone else's pictures.
My youngest is enjoying seeing the moons of Jupiter move every night.
