A Wellington, New Zealand based photographer Philip Windley captured an amazing shot capturing the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in a single picture on the Kapiti Coast.
The surprise to him was that he didn’t even realise what he shot. It was only when he posted the picture on Instagram that one of his friends Kunal, noticed it and informed him about it.
Here’s the shot he took.
If you look closely, you’ll see Venus above the moon, the mercury on the left & below it, while further left the faint star is Jupiter. Absolutely brilliant!
Philip wrote a post describing how he got the shot on his website.
