Last night in the Heavens (Nightsky photo of Jupiter & Venus)

Hi all, here’s a photo of the night sky last night.. As you can see, Jupiter (left) and Venus (right) are edging closer to a Conjuntion 🙂 Well, the actual date /time of this most auspicious conjunction is on 1st July 2015, at 07:51am GMT (when both planets will be on the 21’39” Leo position.  Well, I shall take regular photos when possible (when skies are clear!!) and visibly track this event..
