I woke up early this morning to catch a glimpse of Jupiter, Venus, Mercury and Mars. It’s supposed to be an event that occurs every 100 years, so I just couldn’t miss the opportunity.
Below is a star map of the planets’ position at 6:13am this morning (May 13 2011) in Wollongong.
I didn’t manage to get a photo of the planets as they were quite a fair bit above the horizon at 6:13am and it was starting to get bright. I did take a photo of the sunrise at Wollongong Lighthouse.
p.s: I’ve still getting back to routine after returning from holidays and hence haven’t been posting much yet. I have plenty of photos to share and they will be up soon.
