Lost Friday

In the spirit of Sky Watch Friday I tried unsuccessfully to take a picture of the alignment of Venus. Jupiter, Mercury and Mars. Thankfully my 'friend and  sometimes mentor' was a bit more organized with tripod at the ready in the early hours. To the naked eye it was an amazing sight as I'm sure a lot of you experienced, I love Venus anyway, but she was even more spectacular the last few days.

  1. Great shot. I got a really good shot of the top three but couldn't get one of the four of them. Mars was very faint and just peeping over the top of the fence. I needed to be somewhere unobstructed, not in my back yard. Will put what I did get up next Friday.

  2. Hi Ann, yes it's a shame Mars wasn't a little higher and a lot brighter, would have been a lot easier to get that perfect shot.
