[global off topic] ?

Hey all you creative types.
If you’re anything like me you love a bit of space action!

Jupiter, Venus, Mercury + Mars have been visible together over the past week, and will continue until about May 20th.

I’m heading down to the beach tomorrow morning at 4:30am (chilly!) to take some photos just before sunrise. This is what I’m hoping to see (fingers crossed for no cloud):

If you’re interested, you can install Stellarium to find out when these planets will be visible from your location. F6 to set your location, Ctrl+F to find Jupiter, then F5 to fastforward through time until Jupiter appears above the horizon at night.

Enjoy!
Dave

I noticed these brilliant planets coming together in the morning sky two days ago. I wish I had a decent telescope to see each one closely.
