Venus meet Pleiades

(clean photo without labels available)


At this time you can observe an interesting encounter between Venus and Pleiades in the constellation Taurus. Visibility may be worse because of the present month, but it also opens up new possibilities for creative photography.


The object in the background is the Remote Radar Post in Stara Ves nad Ondrejnici, Czech Republic. This RRP is (as far as I know) in operation since 1977 and the last known unit present at this station was in 2003. Current inhabitants of the base are unknown, but the place is still guarded by a military unit.


EOS 6D mark II on 24 mm | 6" f/2.8 ISO 1600
