More Reflections

Post by MapleRidge » Tue Mar 20, 2018 3:55 am

Hi all...

The clear weather continues and we had a clear western horizon tonight which allowed the conjunction of the Moon, Venus and Mercury to be viewed again.

As the week goes on the moon will climb higher as it drift east, but the pairing of Mercury and Venus will go on.

Thanks Alexandra...

The images are over emphasizing the red in the sunset, but still very pretty! A lot of cloud on the western horizon last night so no chance to follow Mercury and Venus. Maybe tonight will go better.
