Early this morning 5 planets all lined up in a "planetary parade". This was the first time we're had 5 planets in such a close formation in 1,075 years (although I don't think the Opera House was there 1,075 years ago...). From bottom to top we have Jupiter, Neptune (very faint), Venus (very bright), Mars & Saturn. Can you find all 5?
With some careful planning & luck with clear skies, I managed to frame it than over one of Sydney's most iconic buildings. I think they make a great combo!
You can check out how I did this on my YouTube channel (video will be uploaded within about a week, as I am exhausted after such an early start).
Prints available in Australia from here.
An annotated version of this image can be found here highlighting the location of 5 planets (Earth not annotated).

Why does my dumb ass only count 4 planets?
