Four Planets

Four Planets

For the past four nights I?ve been out looking for Mercury, scanning through the twilight with binoculars in one hand and camera in the other. Finally, the clouds let up just enough this night to allow me to see not only Mercury, but Saturn and Mars together. Also in the image are Castor and Pollux the two ?head? stars of Gemini ? the twins. The image is entitled Four Planets. The fourth planet of course is Earth in the bottom of the image : )
