Landscape image of a planet - 19.3.2023 at 20.03 - 19.3.2023 at 20.03 Lempäälä, Sääksjärvi Observation number 113565

Visibility I / V

When I was returning to Sääksjärvi last night, there was a bright evening star shining in the west in the direction of the sunset, I wondered what it could be and I came to the conclusion, because the object did not twinkle - I did notice a flicker - that it must be our neighboring planet. I tried to take a picture of it with my iPhone 7 smartphone, but my storage space was full, and I couldn't take a picture. Well, I had this ancient iPhone 5s spare phone in my other pocket and I got a picture of the object taken with it, but the focus was not quite right and also this phone of mine turned off immediately after taking the picture due to the lack of power and the cold weather - I tried my best though - the weather was bright and clear and full of stars was visible in the darkening evening sky, I distinguished among them Orion's belt.
