Tonight the brightest planet in the evening sky joined in conjunction with the farthest of the visible wanderers of old in the southeastern night sky about 30 minutes after sunset.
The two planets are seen in the sky only 3 degrees apart -- or about the approximate width of your thumb at an arm length. I captured both planets just over the treeline at 25 minutes past sunset.
This photo will wrap up a number of dazzling October night sky events this blogger was blessed enough with good weather to photo. The two planets will remain in close proximity on Halloween night. On November 1st, Luna will be joining these two planets in the evening sky, then traveling closer to Mars by the 5th and 6th. As always -- weather permitting -- I will endeavor to capture those planetary meetings.
As always I hope y'all enjoyed these photos.
