Saturn and Mercury from the Shore

About this image

I went down to the shoreline to enjoy the beautiful twilight view of three planets. Saturn and Mercury are both approaching the end of their period of visibility and were only visible with binoculars, low down in the SW sky. In this view over the Solent, Saturn is a little higher to the left and Mercury a little lower to the right.
