Orion and Gemini rise above lights of Bursa in this summer morning view. But there is more that. Right at the horizon at the break if dawn, bright planets Venus and Jupiter appear in a close conjunction (celestial pairing). Click the constellation icon above the image to see a close-up image of the pair with the M44 Beehive star cluster in the same view. Tunc Tezel
