I had a good one recently: an airplane, ISS, the Moon, Venus and Jupiter -- a quick education in Astronomy!

I just wish I had a good camera to take shots like Stu's and others.
Nice view in the southern hemisphere tonight - Jupiter, Moon and Venus in a mutual event smile.gif

Figuring I'd "done" the conjunction pretty comprehensively from Kendal Castle, last night I went down to Lake Windermere to try for some shots from there. I had a crazy idea to try and get a pic showing the Moon, Venus and Jupiter all reflected in the lake...

Another night, another photo safari, this time to the "picturesque coastal town of Arnside", famous for its stunning views 'across the bay', and its fish and chips, which draw people from miles around. Gorgeous clear night, with beautiful sunset colours, and the Moon, Venus and Jupiter blazing above, and reflected in, the waters of the bay. A great way to say goodbye, and thank you, to the conjunction...

Thought I was done taking pics of Venus and Jupiter, but the sky at our Ullswater campsite on Friday night was too good to waste...

Told you Venus and Jupiter would still be great!!
Nice shot with the illuminated tent.
Get your binoculars or small scope out for Venus and the Pleiades on Monday and Tuesday night.

Venus passed by the Pleiades Cluster tonight. My photo is with a Canon XS f/7.1, 1/5 second, ISO1600, 21mm lens setting, looking through a 50mm (25x) eyepiece of a 200mm-aperture Dobsonian reflector telescope. Brightened and contrast increased in Photoshop Elements, compressed from 3MB to 0.64MB. Venus is vastly overexposed.

A pic taken from my home close to Meudon Observatory on March 25. The sight was very impressive even from the center of Paris...

And the atmosphere was so cristal clear that the small gibbous disk of Venus was also visible with a 20x magnification... Enjoy ! smile.gif

Venus will become more crescent-shaped and larger this month - already less than half full in this photo taken April 2nd, a few days after the one above.
I used a Canon XS attached in place of an eyepiece on a 200mm aperture Dobsonian Reflector Telescope, 1/50 second exposure ISO-400 using the prime focus technique. Photo cropped from a very large, mostly blank exposure.

I had a quiz last week asking whose 2 gods were the Gods of the Olympics in ancient greece! I am unable to double check but the answer was Zeus and Aphodite... which means Jupiter and Venus for the Romans. That's a kind of nice coincidence for the coming Olympics in London in another 4 months, right Stu?

Absolutely, Climber! smile.gif

Just found out that Nancy Atkinson (no relation, honest!) has been kind enough to use on Universe Today an astropoem I wrote about the conjunction...

Just my own personal way of remembering a rather special time.
