This morning I had the first view at the encounter of the two planets, nearly 4 degrees. They come closer in the next days. But nobody knows if there is the chance of another sketch.

 

I sketched inverse, like deep sky and inverted in the computer. The real glow of Venus was not easy to manage.

Uwe,

 

Very nice landscape-planet pair sketch. I think I see Antares too.

Saw this view 2 mornings back out the window.

Very good.

 

Frank :)
