Looking for Venus and Saturn
Stan came out for dinner and then we went to the meeting together because he wanted to hear the talk about orbital mechanics. He mentioned that if we went down to the harbor before dinner, we might see Venus and Saturn together, setting in the west. Man, it was cold and windy, but we toughed it out. Stan was using a long lens, and I decided to do the wide-angle view, because I loved the streams of water draining down into the harbor. If you click on this picture, you will be able to see Venus, in the upper left hand corner of the picture. And slightly up and to the right is a much fainter Saturn.
