The great conjunction

planets align

John Lafferty has sent in this picture with the following quote:

The planets of Venus, Mercury, Jupiter and Mars as seen in the eastern sky this morning. As long as the skies are clear and you wish to put up with the cold,this should be visible for a few more days

This is probably why the Mayans thought the world is going to end in 2012.

Great pic, and thanks for the heads up. I will definitely be checking this out. It is both humbling and comforting to see that our planet is not alone!

Thankyou John!

It is Venus (Love and Romance) I have been trying to identify as the planet viewed in the early hours of the morning lately!

Explains my feelings within my heart!
