The weather was much more favourable last night for the very attractive conjunction of the thin crescent Moon with Mercury to the right of the Moon and Venus low down to the right of the image. This was taken from the flat roof of an extension in our house which offered the best horizon in this direction, despite the number of trees in the way.
