Moon, Mercury and Saturn

By: Tunc Tezel


Region: Middle East

Site: Bursa - Turkey

Date: 2009 August 22

The crescent Moon appears low in the evening sky of Uluabat Lake, near Bursa of Turkey, while planets Mercury and Saturn are barely visible in the bright twilight (find them to the right of the Moon). As noted by the photographer "I was located in Apolyont village, some 40 km west of Bursa. It would be impossible to catch the planets or maybe even the Moon if it were not this clear; all three were very low in the sky just 40 minutes after sunset." Tunc Tezel
