Moon and Mercury

25. May 2020

Last days offered us a really splendid view to conjunctions of Venus, Mercury, and even a waxing crescent Moon.

However, the weather is not always forgiving and it can easily improve, or worsen observations conditions. I remember my photograph of partial Moon eclipse from 2019 when clouds covered part of the Moon and made that image so unique. Unfortunately, the conditions were not perfect yesterday. Venus disappeared behind the clouds and I suggested capturing at least the 4% illuminated Moon and Mercury. Well, it looks like a great idea. In this case, clouds covered the Venus, but make this image unique again. What’s Your opinion? 😉
