About this image

Last evening was again beautifully clear, with wonderful twilight colours over the Solent. In this image Jupiter is very bright upper left, with Saturn and Mercury(R) much fainter low to the left of the spit of shingle. They were below naked eye visibility but easily visible with binoculars.
