Tonight 20th Feb Mars Moon Venus

Postby Alderney99 » 20 Feb 2015, 20:14

Just been out at tea-time tonight seeing the superb conjunction of the very slim penumbra moon, crescent Venus,
and VERY red Mars directly above Venus, against a clear blue twilight.

Has anyone bagged any pictures?
As my camera is just a domestic one, and this tonight was crying out for a really good image or two.

Weather tomorrow likely dire, but if clear, I hope others will go out and look - and with the Bridges in the foreground,
a chance of some unique photography.

If its clear then, we'll be heading at sunset up to the back road above Otterston, which has a huge vista to the west.
