Location: Maces Bay, NB
Date Time: May 21, 2013 2149hrs
Weather: 14 degrees Celsius partly cloudy, almost no wind, lots of moisture in air. Clouds moving slowly from SW to N.
Equipment: Canon DSLR camera, 75-300mm lens, image processed at http://s1115.photobucket.com/
Objective: To capture an image of and view the Jupiter-Venus-Mercury conjunction
Report: The stated objective was not met, because Mercury was not visible, either by the naked eye, or after processing the images. Jupiter and Mercury did peak out momentarily from behind the dark, wispy clouds that hung low in the west at sundown. The rest of the sky was relatively clear, but there seemed to be a lot of moisture in the air. Viewing was not ideal.
