Venus and Jupiter Conjunction 2016
Over the past couple of weeks the brightest planets in the night sky – Venus and Jupiter – have been putting on a show as they appeared closer and closer together. Saturday August 27 was the closest approach but the weather ruined the show in Hobart. The next night, with clear skies, I managed a few shots.
Here are a few rather extreme crops on the above:
Jupiter and Venus where the main players in the show, but not to be outdone – tiny Mercury was also in the same frame (70-200mm at 200mm).
We have been treated to a few starry nights lately and I have a few more images to share. Fingers crossed for another aurora sometime soon too – it has been a very long time between drinks on the aurora front!
