Jupiter

3.5.2015 at 22.53 - Kauhava
Elina Niemi, Lakeuden Ursa

A thin cloud, but for the first time I got a shadow photographed on the surface of Jupiter. So here is the Europa moon and its shadow.

Jupiter

26.4.2015 at 22.27 - Uusikaupunki (III)
Mikko Ankelo, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Jupiter 4/26/2015 I photographed the same regions of Jupiter on April 21, 2015. Pretty fast, changes seem to be happening, especially in the northern equatorial belt (NEB). The weather was reasonable, but good weather is still expected ...

Jupiter

24.4.2015 at 22.47 - Kauhava
Elina Niemi, Lakeuden Ursa

Photographed from a light sky. Better to photograph from the dark sky, but still visible now.

Jupiter

23.4.2015 at 22.25 - Tampere (III)
Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

After all, the Big Red Dot agreed to show up, and it wasn't any funnier.

Jupiter

23.4.2015 at 00.16 - Kuopio, Maaninka (III)

This is the second time I have tried to describe Jupiter. Seeing was really great, sometimes there was a feeling that you were looking at a photo and not a picture fluttering in the wind.

Kuu, Venus ja Aldebaran

21.4.2015 at 23.30 - Raisio (II)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Circular encounter of celestial bodies. So the sky got to a thin cloud, because I didn't fool to start shooting before. Utu surprised, but let's go with the frames now :)

Kuu ja Venus

21.4.2015 at 23.15 - 23.40 - Ilmajoki (III)
Mauri Korpi, Lakeuden Ursa

Moon and Venus counting. It was so cloudy that both of them developed some kind of perimeter. The cloud front appropriately dimmed the moon in the last images.

Kuu, Venus ja Aldebaran

21.4.2015 at 23.10 - Jyväskylä (IV)
Jesse Kyytinen, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The crescent moon shone next to Aldebaran, who had just seen a bright red, Venus was also nearby.

Jupiter

21.4.2015 at 23.00 - Uusikaupunki (III)
Mikko Ankelo, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Jupiter still shines bright, even as the nights are getting shorter. Shooting is still great for a while.

Kuu ja Venus

21.4.2015 at 22.30 - Lieto (IV)
Matti Helin, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Pretty encounter.

Jupiter

21.4.2015 at 22.23 - Tampere (III)
Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

The last ones are exported but I got a few videos grabbed and the weather turned out to be quite good.

Venus ja Jupiter

19.4.2015 at 23.10 - Uusikaupunki (IV)
Janne Kari

Jupiter and Venus fit so well into the field of view of a 20-millimeter obiska that I had to try if, despite the horrible border drawing, that glass would both get a picture nicely.

Jupiter

18.4.2015 at 22.40 - Nastola (III)
Mika Kontiainen, Lahden Ursa

A small tube and a large cell are clearly not the best combination for describing planets. Adequate magnification was achieved by stacking 2x and 3x Barlows on top of each other. The ISO sensitivity also had to be significantly increased. The red dot became quite clear.

Jupiter

15.4.2015 at 22.20 - Uusikaupunki (III)
Mikko Ankelo, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Jupiter photographed in a reasonable weather. Hopefully now in the spring there will still be plenty of good filming before the nights get shorter and brighter. Fortunately, planets can be described from a rather light sky.

Jupiter

12.4.2015 at 00.44 - Tampere (III)
Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

Keli looked better than average so I took several video clips with both mv and color camera. For some reason, the color camera now produced a better impression. I also tried the IR-pass filter (which therefore only lets light up from the IR channel). The result in the second picture.

Venus

11.4.2015 at 22.34 - Rautalampi (III)
Vesa Vauhkonen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

Venus with its frame near Seulas.

Venus ja Plejadit

11.4.2015 at 22.15 - Espoo (IV)
Mikko Koivisto

Venus in the landscape. The planet has been a great eye-catcher in the evening sky throughout the spring winter. When the ice left, the picture got a nice reflection. And there also the Pleiades near Venus :)

Venus ja Seulaset M45

9.4.2015 at 23.00 - Jyväskylä (IV)
Jesse Kyytinen, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Venus has been moving closer to Seoul all the time in the spring.

Jupiter

5.4.2015 at 22.47 - Jyväskylä (II)
Harri Kiiskinen, Jyväskylän Sirius

Bright evening, so I decided to try shooting Jupiter with a 127mm Skymax. The restless weather and well over half of the screens in the video were unusable. Io appears on the right side of the planet.

Jupiter

31.3.2015 at 21.10 - Turku (IV)
Jani Laasanen, Turun Ursa

Passage of the cliff in front of Jupiter. Ganymedes and Io are also visible on both sides of Jupiter. Photographed with a 15 cm Väisälä lens telescope and 2x barlow from the Iso-Heikkilä observatory.
