A fisheye image was taken of the amazing five planet alignment in the pre-dawn hours of February 2, 2016. The image was taken at the base of a snow covered hill in Lancaster, PA. Mercury, Venus, the moon, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter can all be seen in this photograph taken with a Canon T6s and a 8-15 mm f/4L lens. Star spikes were added in Photoshop Elements to bring out the contrast and color of the planets and stars.
