The morning skyshow featuring Jupiter and Venus as seen from Adelaide, Australia. Images taken with a Canon IXUS 100 IS, 400 ASA, 3x Zoom, 4 seconds exposure, roughly around 6:20 and 6:45 am repectively. Venus is the brightest object, and is almost at its closest to Aldebaran. Jupiter is the next brightest object and Aldebaran the brightest after that (and closest to Venus). My previous images are here.
