I’ve been watching Jupiter and Venus getting closer and closer together in the skies all winter. This week they had a conjunction – the closest apparent distance between them. I wasn’t sure when it was, and we’ve had a lot of cloud recently. But when I saw them last night I thought they looked pretty close. And tonight they seemed to have got further away again. Those in the know tell me the big event was on Tuesday. Ah well. I was fairly pleased with this picture though, taken on Wed 14th March at 19.27 GMT. Pretty much due west. Not bad for a little digital camera resting on the top of a post in the garden!
