Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury

Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, Oct. 23, 2015. The bright planets to the upper right are, (in order of brightness) Venus, Jupiter, and Mars. There is a fourth planet visible to the lower left, near the triangle of faint clouds — the planet Mercury. Orbiting close to the Sun, Mercury always makes its appearances fairly close to the horizon, and in the glow of sunrise or sunset.

This photograph was taken at 6:58 a.m. EDT. There's a serene beauty to nature at this time of day as the landscape slowly comes back to life after the night.
