This view doesn't look out of the ordinary - unless you know that it was taken just off the northernmost point of continental Europe, Norway's Cape Nordkinn at 71° North (from the Hurtigrurten's Kong Harald). May be useful for astronomy teaching by comparing the position angle between Venus und Jupiter with images taken around the same time - March 18 at 17:45 UTC (much) farther south.

Twilight
The two prominent planets Venus and Jupiter already shine brightly in the evening sky, while the stars slowly appear in the darkening sky over the alpine foothills.

Strangeness on Mars...

Post by wjaeschke » Fri Mar 23, 2012 9:20 pm

I can't call it a cloud, but it looks like one. So far, astronomers are unable to explain exactly what this is, but here is a green-light animation of a feature I imaged on Mars on the evening of March 19th (March 20th UT).

and here's an RGB image taken with the feature...

Venus and Jupiter set behind the St. Faustina's church in Wroclaw, Poland on March 24, 2012. It is possible to see the Moon in the very first frames. Note the clock on the tower. Thanks: Pavla Zapiór and Michał Kaniowski. Copyright: Maciej Zapiór.

Hola dupko. Son condiciones atmosféricas ordinarias, aunque no sé por qué se producen (como no sé por qué se produce casi nada de lo que me rodea, por eso hago fotografías). Quizás sea por la densidad de las nubes, la altura.. Saludos.
