Sorry guys I was , for 10 mins, just enough break in the cloud to see the two planets and hopefully the full "conjunction" . It was 4.50 thru to 5.05 but not totally clear (nasty black clouds kept coming thru) but I could see the two objects and bright they were - bet a few UFO calls made :laugh2: . Looked even better thru the Bins but I had to go into the next door cow field (blastered Conifers have to go) which must have looked odd as I was in my pajamas  and slippers as I had missed my alarm clock and had no time to get dressed.


Yes Kim this time I did see an object next to Venus - p.s you weren't up on the North York Moors last week were you ?


However the cloud then came in just when my wife came out shouting (got an ear bashing) as she couldn't find me and thought I had done a "Robin Williams" - strange minds these female's have never understand them.


So luckily I saw it / them - I just don't do AP so no photo's.

Found this stunning shot of it over Kennedy on Facebook by one of my friends.




Taken by Stephen W. Ramsden of the Charley Bates Solar Astronomy Project this morning at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
