Mars or Antares?

Recommended Posts

This morning, between 6.30 to 7.00, low down, just to the right of where the sun is coming up. I was driving so couldn't get exact bearings. It wasnt fully dark but it seemed too bright for a star to be visible, though Antares is I big one! Anyone else do a bit of morning sky scanning that could confirm?

Ah, just fast forwarded Sky Safari. Probably Jupiter, it was hiding behind a virtual tree!. Never mind!

I must admit I find it a little odd that the app includes high trees, mountains and other objects that obscure your view of the horizon. I know you can change this to transparent but then it gets a bit disorientating. My vote is they keep the lush green grass and have uniform hedge row around the perimeter at a 2mtr height limit. That way the virtual birds still have nesting grounds and we get a clearer view 🙂

Yes saw it myself Dave, Antares is fairly well south south east by then and in dark sky as I get up around 5.45am.
