Finally had some warmer weather although still below freezing at least there was no wind like yesterday morning. This arrangement of the planets and the Moon makes it easy to visualize the ecliptic and the relationship that the planets, our Moon, and the sun have with this ‘reference line’.
Here are are a couple of pictures of the six visible planets taken from one of my morning viewing locations. Definitely not for dark sikes!
Picture specifications: 18 mm; 2.5 sec.; f9; ISO 400
