Twilight Beacons

Venus & Jupiter near conjunction over Jervis Bay, NSW at twilight 1 July 2015.

Venus is at 77 million km and Jupiter 910 million km (Opposite sides of the Solar System). These two planets will dominate the western horizon during the first half of July, culminating with a spectacular field of view around 18/19 July when a thin crescent moon will join them.

      1. I take all my photos with my iPhone and have just gotten a 6, so perhaps I will put it on the tripod and see if it is better than the 5 was for low light conditions. Thanks. 🙂
