Mercury - 6.3.2012 at 19.15 Rautalampi Observation number 2503

Visibility II / V

Vesa Vauhkonen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

Now Mercury was most visible to me so far. I took such a series of time-pictures of children again, 2 min apart. Finally, I tried to fit Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter into the same picture. Mercury stands out at the bottom right above the trees. The shooting location is the Rautalammi Hanhitaipale South Konnevesi ice.

Hienosti onnistuneet kuvat. Planeetan kanssa saa olla tosiaan aktiivisena oikeaan aikaan. Eli kun taivas on tarpeeksi tumma ja Merkurius vielä näkyy. Varsinkin kun näkee kuinka pitkän matkan kohti horisonttia planeetta taivaalla matkaa 2 minuutissa.
