After several days of grey and gloom there was an amazing sunset in Cardiff Bay tonight – a gradual change from blue to black in the sky colour, but most amazing of all was that two planets were easily visible.
In the photo you can see Venus to the lower right (almost in the centre of the frame) and Jupiter above and to the left. Venus is currently about 1.09AU (astronomical units) away – that’s about 101,321,918 miles! Jupiter is about 5.66AU away – that’s about 526,130,324 miles!!
