A trio of morning Planets. 6th December 2012

by on , under Astronomy Blog

While preparing for work I glanced out of the window and saw it was clear.

Picture: Spica, Saturn, Venus and Mercury (From top right to bottom left).

Knowing Mercury was meant to be visible, I could see it above the neighbours houses, despite being less than 5 degrees above the horizon.

The skies were still clear by the time I had got my act together and assembled the camera on the tripod.

I took these image out of the first floor window.

The show Arcturus top right, with Saturn, Venus and Mercury just above the houses.

Picture: Saturn, Venus and Mercury.

A nice capture before getting out of the house to go to work.
