About this image

3 members of Crayford AS met at a local high spot to image the conjunction and we were not disappointed. Keeping our distance from each other we all managed to enjoy the spectacle until the Moon set. The buildings on the horizon are in Canary Wharf and the pyramid roof of One Canada Square seen in the center is 18.1km from our observing spot in Hextable, Kent.
