1533e 2013/05/25–26

1533e 2013/05/25–26 20:50–21:15 EDT S of 1177 Wainman Line 8 ne 10x50b 

Triple conjunction of Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter.

Transparency not as good as last night. I spotted Venus at 20:32 with 10x50b, and Jupiter almost immediately after: much closer than last night. Mercury was much more elusive, especially since I hadn't checked its position with Starry Night. Finally I could see them all naked eye at 21:12. As last night, Jupiter had a definite disk in the 10x50s.

Temperature 12° C
