Venus, Mars, Saturn, Casiopeia, Orion, Ursa Major The Sky photographed. Pictures with Nikon D80

Above: Venus and Jupiter

Above: The constellation Orion.

Above: The constellation Casiopeia.

Above: Big Dipper (Ursa Major).

Above: Mars.

Above: Saturn.

These photos were taken on the outskirts of Baia Mare as usualThe sky was caught here by a friend of mine, with my Nikon D80, while I shoot Mars through the 8" telescope.

The first photos are captured the planets Venus and Jupiter setting down. Earlier Venus I was just filmed down my block when it was high enough to catch clean images of this planet, but processing will take some time. Venus will be more closer to the Pleiades then now, on April 3, 2012, (the peak of the meeting). Venus has a cycle of transits by the Pleiades every eight years until 2060.

Below are the pictures of the Big Dipper, or Ursa Major, the stars with each of their names. They are seven in number, and are called Merak, Dubbhe, Phad, Megrez, Alioth, Mizar and Alkaid.

In the last photos, Saturn( I also filmed it that night), was almost the same horizontal level with the star Spica.

 It was enough light pollution because there lights on passing cars, but also because at the northeast is a shopping center.
