Moon, Mercury & Venus

  • After the 6-inch snowfall the day before, I happened to be up early at 4am to drive my mother and her friend to the airport. After the drop off and a quick cat nap, I drove over to Lake Massabesic to get one last glimpse of the 5 planets and moon alignment. For about a month from Jan-Feb, 5 planets (Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter) would be aligned on the horizon and visible right before dawn. When I got there, a soft orange glow of the sun was appearing and Venus was beaming so bright. I played around with different angles for my shot and thought I would try getting some of the snow covered trees in the frame. Venus is the brighter star on the right tucked within the branches and Mercury is on the left just below the moon. © Christie Wrazen 2016, Auburn NH, Tripod-mounted.
