A bedroom window view of the dawn sky showing Jupiter to the right and Saturn and Mars more central in the morning sky. A slightly earlier time gives better contrast than my previous view, although I had to wait until Saturn and Mars had cleared the trees to the left. I might have ventured down to the seafront for a more scenic backdrop but because of the Covid-19 lockdown I suspect that would have been unwise!
