Location of Photo:

Kalamazoo, MI

Date/Time of photo:

December 10, 2006 @ 7:11 am

Equipment:

This image was taken with a Tele Vue Pronto (with Focal Reducer) and a Canon 300D. Exposure time was 0.5 second at ISO 400.

Description:

The morning of December 10 was the "main event" of the triple conjunction of Jupiter, Mercury, and Mars. Jupiter and Mercury were only separated by 0.3 degrees. It made for a nice scene with the naked eye, not to mention very photogenic. I'd like to see the conjunction again tomorrow, but the typical Michigan cloud cover is due to return!
