Hello all

First my early GAM sketch made on the subject with left, Venus and to the right, Saturn (up) and Mars (down)
I add the Takahashi view - (made on the field too), just inverted here.


On the field original sketch

And as souvenir the unaided eye view made with watercolor the day after in my "workshop"

Of course Andrew!
I like to watercolour the conjunctions, those are images were we feel our position in the solar system.
But weather must be cooperating, If every ok, I must be in Norway ?

Hi Andrew,
Thank you for your message
Of course I will try this conjunction too, ... weather permitting because I must be in cloudy Norway then.

Great work Michel! I love the sky colours and setting.  

Will you do more artwork for the grand conjunction on April 27 when the moon joins Venus and Jupiter?
