The Planets Align (April 28, 2022)
It was an image that I couldn’t get out of my head. Taken on April 28th, this shot of the night sky over Perth, Western Australia, caused me to want to see how it looked on an astrology chart.
The question of timing was going to be a bit tricky, since the person who shared this image online did not explain what time of day it was shot. So I experimented a little and came up with 5:00 am, local time. The planets in the description were listed as Saturn, Mars, Venus, Jupiter and the crescent Moon. (And lately, I had noticed two of these same planets in the night sky, and the brightest one surprised me.) Venus is actually exactly conjunct Neptune here, and Pluto is out of the camera’s range.
So, there you have it…more than half the usual suspects are visible to the naked (camera) eye… Wow!
