Sunrise at Wollongong Lighthouse

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.

    great photos Ed – you must run a course! – though i think the camera may contribute! – your nearly buddy from the adelaide! – i was looking for a blog to see if there was a thread about the dangerous currents on the inside of the boat due to the clowns putting her down at the wrong angle to the prevailaing swell & this holes everywhere!

      Hey Aidan,

      Thanks, glad you like the photos. Hopefully we’re get many more good dive conditions on the HMAS Adelaide.
