Saturn in 2021

Saturn lies just to the left of centre in this image taken by Malcolm Neal on the evening of the 7th December 2021. Jupiter is visible at upper left, while Venus lies at lower right. The 3 day old crescent Moon completes this celestial quartet. An annotated version of the image is included below. Malcolm took the picture on his hand-held Sony A7 III camera with a 24 - 105 zoom at 24mm. He tweaked the image brightness slightly upwards. Image © Malcolm Neal.
