Jupiter, Venus and Mercury in the West – image taken over the New Forest

Moon blazing away overhead, so not a great night for deep-sky imaging – BUT – a great night for the planets.  We not only have Jupiter and Venus competing with the Moon as brightest objects in the sky, but also low down on the western horizon we can see the other red planet – little Mercury 🙂  Superb night and I was a bit of a twit only taking a few “stills” – this was a perfect evening to have a go at an animation of the setting Mercury, but I only thought of that once I got back home 🙁  One day I WILL get my act together!
