Conjuction of celestial bodies - 26.12.2011 at 16.30 Rautalampi Observation number 819

Visibility III / V

Vesa Vauhkonen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

The Moon and Venus performed quite spectacularly side by side on the evening of the Assumption Day at Rautalammi. In the first shot, subjects rush to the west of the shield, exposures every two minutes. Another image as a single image.

I am just waiting for the twilight to land on December 27th, would the encounter today be even more spectacular?
