I'm inclined to think that all I've captured here is thermal noise in the
camera CCD during an 8s exposure!

Brian says: ``All photos taken with Sony MVC-FD7 Mavica
from 43 Beresford Rd, altitude circa 18m,
looking WNW at between 2140 and 2210 BST on 22 May 2002. Steeple is St Luke's
Church, Gibbon Road, Kingston. Stars and planets that may be discernible

The brightest object in the photos is Mars or Venus, probably the latter
as there was no reddish tint to it, IMHO; Jupiter, above it and to the left
is less bright, though brighter than the stars, and visible only in some
photos; I believe there is one image in which Pollux and Castor, the Gemini,
are just visible above Jupiter. The 5 planets are all still well aligned
on the ecliptic but Mercury is probably too close to the Sun to be seen,
as is Saturn, at any rate through our murky horizon atmosphere.''
