 @ The Astronomical Hobbyist 2016

Hand held shot over the neighbours roof top showing the light pollution before the street lamps were changed to LCD full cut off.

Hand held shot as in the above picture showing the improvement in sky colour after the street lighting was replaced with full cut off LCD lighting. Although the sky is darker the lights are very bright when one stands in the direct glare.

This picture of close approach of Venus and Jupiter was taken from the front of my house with a Canon 350D DSLR camera on a static tripod.

Date June 30 2015

Just as the cloud passed over the planets.
Jupiter is the upper object.
