Conjuction of celestial bodies - 18.3.2012 at 23.30 Rautalampi Observation number 3069

Visibility III / V

Vesa Vauhkonen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

Due to my previous comment on My Image, I was excited to study the motion of the planets with respect to the stars. I focused my observations on March 7-18. with Registar. Dates next to Venus, Jupiter naturally in the same order. The apparent motion of Jupiter is also noticeable in such a short period of time.
