Hi all,

Here is the crescent Moon (5% illuminated) and Mercury (to the right of the Moon) rising over Brisbane this morning, viewed from Mt Coot-tha. I took and image every 3 minutes, beginning at about 4:15am, and then stacked them.

Thanks for looking!

Cheers,
Stephen

Thanks Dave and texasphotog.

This image has just been featured on NASA's "Astronomy Picture of the Day" website for 26 April 2012! :)

That's a first for me.
