Tonight was my last attempt to get a shot of Venus and Mercury together.
I had tried for several nights but the weather did not cooperate with me. It looked pretty good tonight so I thought I would give it one last chance.
As in previous nights it was cloudy at my observing location. Tonight was no different but what did I see on the horizon?
Is that a break in the clouds? Yup! Now it was a waiting game. Who will win? The clouds to hopefully dissapate, or the planets to set.
Fifteen minutes later I had a brief window of about 3 minutes to shoot. Here is what I got.
Since I live just below major air corridor the airplane did not cost any extra!
Here is another image of a aircrafts con trail. Why? Because I like it.
