3 planets (again) and other - - -

Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Moon


Roger Samworth


This morning the window-sill observatory window was misted up, so I went outside - - -!

A lot of high altitude cloud, but the planets were still visible. Pictures taken from a couple of locations in the garden.

At the last RAG, there was some discussion about lunar halos, and one was just visible this morning. You can also see Orion and Taurus as a bonus extra!

Zoomed in on the moon also while I was at it.

Finished up with a couple of "atmospheric" shots of Orion and the Plough.

All the pictures were taken with my Canon SX100IS Compact camera.
