The Planets Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter.Here is the same photo where the Planets and the Moon are annotated. Yes, there were clouds, how ever, this is relatively a clear night compare to the rest of the month night. The weather forecast predict a storm coming Sunday to the southern California area. which is the next day. This make this Saturday morning the period of the calm before the storm.
The temperature was around the lower 50s degree F. (around 10 degree Celsius.) The upper wind direction were from west to east. The winds near the ground were blowing from the East. The humidity was high.
Here is a close up look of the planets Mercury and Venus in the same picture frame over the San Fernando Valley:As the Sunrise moment was approaching, I observed the marine layer over both the Simi Valley and the San Fernando Valley. The Earth shadow casting on the pink background sky was beautiful as always. It never gets old. Soon after at this time of the day at 6:52 am in local time, the Sun rose from the east another day. I spend another 2 hours around the peak and observed the changed of the marine layer as it flow over both valleys and between hills tops.
Here is the north view from Rocky peak. Which show Oat Mountain and its many Radio towers.That’s it for today, and catch you later!
Have a nice day!
