Around 7.30 this morning I glimpsed Mars, Jupiter and zubenelgenubi (alpha libra) - all in the same binocular field of view. The conjunction is officially in the early hours of 7th January when the separation of Mars and Jupiter will be just 15 arcminutes but already it's a sight to behold.
The nearby star will again be zubenelgenubi not spica (as I said last night ).
Had a look around 4.20 but not visible from my garden - however about 6.00 the pair shone brightly in the SE.
My picture is a wee bit out of focus but it shows what we wanted it too. Interestingly stars down to magnitude 6-7 show up quite well. Any other images - do show them off. They can't be much worse than mine,
had a look from the upstairs window and could see Jupiter, mars and Antares despite a bright gibbous moon. 0530 - 0540 Tried a handheld camera shot but not very successful although it may possibly show up when I transfer to computer.
