Description
I was late getting out of a Board meeting so thought I had missed my chance at this conjunction. I was also fighting low clouds. Luckily, I was able to find a patch away from any close ground lights just around the time the Pleiades and Moon came out of low clour cover. For added fun, an airplane passed through as I was taking images.
