The Bear and Lion

   Another clear morning with the planets shining brightly over my neighbor’s house. From my driveway only three of the four morning planets are high enough to be visible over the trees. It is becoming more noticeable how Venus has moved east away from Regulus and Mars is moving east as well slowly catching up with east moving Jupiter.
   This picture was taken with a wide angle in order to include the stars of the Big Dipper, on the left, with the sickle or backward question mark shape of Leo the Lion.

   
   
   
   

Caution: Objects viewed with an optical aid are further than they appear.
