When Planets Collide? - Photo Competition

When planets collide, well, converge in this case.  During the month of June we are treated to the spectacle of Venus and Jupiter converging.   If you look roughly Northwest at dusk, 2 of the brightest objects in night sky are putting on a show.  In fact, after the Sun and Moon they are the 3rd and 4th brightest objects.  This photo was taken on the 20th June about 10.30pm and it wasn't fully dark, the 2 planets are easily visible and as you can see this is hardly the clearest of skies either.  If you can view them on the 30th June they will be just one third of a degree apart.
