Venus ja Jupiter - 27.6.2015 at 21.45 Platanias, Kreeta, Kreikka Observation number 39159

Visibility III / V

Ari Ollikainen, Konut tählet, Jaala

One would not believe that it will rain in Crete at this time of year. The clouds cracked so much in the evening that I was able to crack some sort of image of the approach of Venus and Jupiter. I’m trying to be more successful on Tuesday night, when the right h-moment is. Then iOptron's SkyTracker will help.
