I was excited about the close encounter of Venus and Jupiter, but our camping trip out in the frozen North Norwegian night turned out to be a lot more special than expected!
The weather forecast was promising clouds, but it stayed clear most of the night, and we even got treated with a spectacular Aurora outburst!
Then after few hours of sleep we woke up to see the Moon rise followed by Mars. And bit after that the wonderful pair of Venus and Jupiter appeared from behind the epic Lyngen mountains.
Out of the two, Jupiter was pretty hard to spot with the naked eye, because the Sun gave a lot of light already, since it comes up in such a low angle up here.
We watched as the planets slowly faded into the morning light, and enjoyed the brief moment the Sun was visible. Those moments feel precious now, for after one week from now, the next sunrise will be at the end of January!
