Venus ja Merkurius - 22.5.2020 at 22.30 - 23.5.2020 at 00.20 Tampere Observation number 90857

Visibility III / V

Johannes Dahlström, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

From the breakwater of Naistenlahti harbor. The planet duo poses together with the splendor of Hedgehog. With the naked eye, I didn’t spot Mercury, no matter how I tried to tremble. The extinction together with the brightness of the sky was the so-called Too hard a piece for Mark I eyeballs.

As a bonus, a stunning image of happiness, with a medical helicopter passing right by Venus. The camera had a 2 s self-timer on, so the helicopter hitting Venus in the picture was really pure luck.
