When this event happens with objects in the night sky it’s called a conjunction, and that is what Venus, Jupiter and the Moon id on the evening of the 20th June 2015.
Images like this are very easy to take with just your camera on a tripod or rested on a solid surface. Don’t try to handhold the camera as an exposure of a couple of seconds is required and that’s far too long to hold your camera without showing a blurred image.
On Sunday the 28th June 2015, the Sunday Mail ran a great story on this wonderful celestial event and used some of my images along with a couple of images from members at SAS. Jim Barclay was also featured in the article; Jim has just moved his large observatory from Maidenwell in Queensland to Kingaroy. If you are traveling out that way please call in and see him the new observatory Kingaroy Observatory there are many large telescopes to look through. http://www.kingaroyobservatory.com/
