About this image

Saturn & Jupiter in conjunction, barely visible in the lower left quadrant of this image. They were only seen through cloud momentarily. The shot was taken from a first-storey window, but this time (unlike yesterday) with the window open and the observer leaning out of it at a perilous angle! Still hoping for better conditions in the days ahead . . .
