Pete Lawrence does it again. This time he observed and photographed a daylight conjunction of the Moon and Regulus.
I'm impressed by and somewhat surprised at the ease with which he managed to find Regulus:
When first looking for Regulus, I was expecting something of a challenge to be able to pick it out. The Moon was the key to the observation because it provided a target to focus on and a reference point in an otherwise featureless blue sky.I'm annoyed that I missed this.
As it turned out, Regulus actually appeared quite bright and intense. Using an Astronomik red filter darkened the sky (removed the blue component) and improved the view considerably.
