Port Stanley Planets - see for yourself!

Worth the drive to Port Stanley. You can see Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, and Venus strung out across the ecliptic. Arcturus is visible at top right.

Mars far left; distance = about 67 million kilometers

Saturn above #2 lifeguard tower; distance = 1440 million kilometers

Jupiter to the right, above the tent on the beach; distance = 850 million kilometers

Venus far right, low; distance = about 86 million kilometers

Arcturus, top right; distance = 37 light years

Dale, that was a very worthwhile project that was well thought out.

Just an awesome image!
