I think it will just about clear the tree line. This is just after 6am. Sunrise is not until ~7:15am. So, plenty of time.

Not for I. I will still be in bed. But, wanted to make sure that you early risers knew of this. Enjoy. Let me know what it was like.

Venus-Jupiter Conjunction Over New Hampshire, Monday, November 13, 2017 — Clouds & Trees!

Clouds could be a problem. Supposed to be cloudy all day, starting early.

The conjunction will also be low-down (i.e., close to the horizon) and as such, IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, could be obscured by our trees, even if they don’t have any leaves anymore.

Weather permitting this should be quite the conjunction — best seen around 7pm.

The moon is set to set around 8:20pm and more than likely the trees will start getting in the way around 7:30pm.

Venus is the BRIGHT and bigger orb — at the bottom.

Mars is smaller and fainter — and at the top.

The ‘bigger’ light blue orb is Uranus — which is NOT naked eye visible. OK? So you will only see Venus, Mars and the Moon.
