:: Venus and Jupiter conjunction in the wonderful predawn sky of Isola d’Elba (Italy). The image was taken from the Istia beach, in the South East region of the island – You can find other images of this session on my FB page::

The show put on by the Perseid meteor shower early this morning over the Remaiolo beach (Isola d’Elba) was really great! Here you can find some fireballs captured during the photo session.
La scorsa notte lo sciame meteorico delle Perseidi ha offerto uno spettacolo eccezionale sulla Spiaggia del Remaiolo (vicino Capoliveri, Isola d’Elba)! Ecco alcune dei bolidi più brillanti catturati durante la sessione fotografica.
Above is a bright meteor captured next to the Plaeiades. Sopra un bolide passa accanto le Pleiadi.
This morning I have been so lucky to capture (from Isola d’Elba) a Perseid meteor in the same frame together with the Moon-Jupiter-Venus line-up. Few minutes earlier also a -7 mag. Iridium Flare joined the scene:
I took these images from Villefranche (located in Côte d’Azur, the Mediterranean coastline of the southeast corner of France) before dawn on July 7, 2012 and showing the beautiful line-up of (from top to bottom) Pleiades, Jupiter, Venus (sitting in the V-shaped Hyades star cluster) and Aldebaran in the twilight colors over Cap-d’Ail.
I took the photo above last evening (April 22, 2012) from Turin (Italy): it shows a 36 hours old crescent Moon pairing with a bright Jupiter setting behind the peak of Rocciamelone (3,538 m -11,608 ft), a mountain of the Graian Alps. A great way to celebrate Earth Day :-)
