Planetary Photography - 10-25-2016 - Venus, Saturn & Antares

As the sunset this evening in the southwestern sky I was fortunate enough to get a couple of really beautiful shots of the planets Venus and Saturn. 

The first photo I managed to get near a set of power lines of Venus appearing in the evening sky. I was especially proud of this shot with Venus in the pink sunset clouds.


The second photo I took approximately 20 minutes later near a baseball field just outside of Chester's city limits. Venus in all of its bright glory with tiny Saturn (relatively speaking) and the bright star Antares joining in. 


As always I am pleased to share these amazing views of our night-time neighbors with all of y'all.
