Early morning planet spotting


Last weekend my husband and I got up before dawn to try and see the alignment of planets, which is currently best visible just before dawn. Armed with coffee, binoculars, my camera, a blanket, and wrapped up warm we made our way to our chosen spot. We decided that the best place to view the planets was higher up with an uninterrupted view of the horizon, which just happens to be in the middle of our off-leash dog park. As we had left our dogs at home I dread to think what the couple of early dog walkers must have made of us. After all that though we never did get to see the planets, as a large Chinook arch had swept in and robbed us of a clear view. However, there was a silver lining (pardon the pun) to all this; I ended up with some nice sunrise photos.
