Visibility IV / V

Kuossari Petri, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

The day was wonderfully clear and I planned to photograph Venus and Jupiter as soon as dusk began. I looked at the cloudiness fast approaching Venus and Jupiter, I quickly put my phone on the tripod and take a picture, unfortunately I was about two seconds late, the clouds roll in front of the planets. The situation looked desperate and I decided to go grocery shopping with my wife. In the middle of the trip, I told my wife to stop the car at that bus stop. The wife wondered why, well I opened the window and took a picture of the meeting of Venus and Jupiter thanks to a small clear gap in the clouds. When I left the store, I got another picture from the parking lot.
