Worlds on the edge of forever

“You never enjoy the world aright, till the Sea itself floweth in your veins, till you are clothed with the heavens, and crowned with the stars.”

  1. Great capture, Wes. Seeing five planets in one image is a challange in itself. Seeing them defined so well, considering the relative brightness, and proximitiy to the twilight, is exceptional; and seeing them within the context of their visual appearance amongst the background star field and Milky Way – is trully a treasure. While digitlizing old VHS tapes recently, I came across a video tour (from 8/30/86) of all of these planets, except Mercury – it’s presentation really sad compared to you’re stunning horizon to horizon capture.
