Conjunction!

Photography, Uncategorized

If you’ve been out in the evening for the past week, you may have noticed three shining lights grow closer and closer together until May 26th, when they formed a perfect triangle. These lights were the three planets Jupiter, Venus and Mercury. They came together for a close, rare conjunction on the 26th. I was worried by partial cloud cover during the day, but they cleared in the west in time for me to snap some photographs. Since these planets are close to the horizon, they don’t offer much a view through a telescope due to all the atmosphere and pollution you look through. Enjoy!
