About this image

A cropped image taken from a very blustery Hill Head shore of the close conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, taken with a compact camera. The yellowish colour and much fainter appearance of Saturn compared to Jupiter is obvious. Sadly I think it will be impossible to see the closest conjunction today owing to the current dismal weather!
