Morning Planets and Moon
If you get a nice grouping of Venus, the Moon and Mercury, you would expect lots of people to blog about it and see it…unless it is in the pre-dawn sky in late December! I managed to get up this morning and get the camera setup.
I like the effect of bright Venus and the Moon poking through the trees. The Moon is a waning crescent but overexposed in this pic so you don’t see that effet well. In order to get a better picture of the Moon, I reduced the exposure time. Of course then you don’t see as many stars.
Tomorrow the Moon will have moved closer to Mercury and Sunday the VERY thin crescent will be just below Mercury. Your best best to see Mercury is probably about 45 minutes before sunrise. I am hoping for clear skies here the next couple of mornings!
