Beautiful Pairing of Moon and Venus on 8 September 2013
The two brightest objects in the night sky the Moon and Venus were visible towards west just after the Sunset. Just above the Moon within 5 degrees was the star Spica (the brightest star in the constellation of Virgo). Karachi astronomers and Astrophotographers will lucky to have this opportunity as it was visible in Karachi and there weren’t too many clouds. I was lucky to that I knew about it beforehand and I was prepared. After Magrib prayers, I got ready with my Camera and went to my Spider’s Observatory at fourth floor of my house. Set up the camera, and started to take photos after looking the breath taking view.
This is one of the Astronomical event that one can observe and enjoy in cities.. 🙂 One doesn’t need to go to a dark place for such observations!
Tomorrow on 9th September 2013, will also be a great show towards west
