Pleasing planetary parade

Members of the Astronomical Society of Brunei Darussalam (PABD) captured a rare phenomenon called the ‘Great Planet Parade’ several times recently.

The close proximity of the crescent Moon to the brilliant Venus and the bright Seven Sisters (Pleiades- M45) star cluster in the constellation Taurus at dawn was a special moment captured on June 26.

The planetary parade was easily visible to the unaided eye with the clear weather and sky watchers did not need to use binoculars or a telescope to observe the celestial spectacles.
