Planet Parade

We have really enjoyed the dance of the planets this past weekend. We had clear skies and were able to observe them every night. I forgot to take a picture one night though. Grrrr.....

Thursday night - June 23
You can click the pictures to make them bigger if you want to.
Most of the pictures also show the Gemini twins, Castor and Pollux, to the upper right of the three planets. However, I only labeled them in one of the pictures.

Friday night - June 24

Saturday night - June 25

I didn't take a picture Sunday night. Mercury was just to the lower right of Venus and super close.

Monday night - June 27

Tuesday night - June 28 Posted by Hello

Saturn is going to drop out of sight soon, but we'll be able to keep observing Venus and Mercury for a while.
