    Venus and Jupiter will be about 14 arcminutes apart in the predawn sky on April 30. An awesome visual and photographic opportunity! Check this link and enter your location to see if it will be visible in your zone: https://in-the-sky.org/news.php?id=20220430_20_100

    Thanks, Reggie. Getting out of bed at 6:00am on a Saturday is the challenge. o_O

    A widefield that includes homes and trees would probably be nice. I'll have my camera ready the night before.

    Yes, unfortunately. Did you get to see the Jupiter & Saturn conjunction in 2020?

    I think that was too low as well. I may try and find where the anchor is and see if I can get the UK to drift nearer the equator. I'm sure no one would mind. The weather might be better too. lol
