Planet Conjunction over Lake Annette

By: Alan Dyer

 

Region: Americas

Site: Jasper National Park - Canada

Spot: Lake Annette

Date: 2015 October 25

The conjunction of Venus (brightest), Jupiter (above Venus) and Mars (dimmer below Venus and Jupiter) looking east in the morning twilight on October 25, 2015, as seen from the west shore of Lake Annette, in Jasper National Park, Alberta. The mountain is the Watchtower. Morning mist covers the lake waters. Haze in the sky adds the natural glows around the planets no filters were employed here.
This photo composite is a layered stack of 4 images: 10, 5, 2.5 and 1.3-second exposures, with the longer exposure for the ground and the shorter exposures adding the sky to maintain tonal balance between the dark ground and bright sky. All with the 24mm lens and Canon 6D at ISO 400. It was not possible to capture the reflection of the planets in the water as they were too high in the sky.
