Two giants meet the Moon in the southern sky

Three of the largest and brightest objects in the night sky are currently moving together above the southern horizon: fortunately, apart from a little haze, 'seeing' was good enough for a few photos last night. I used a variety of lenses and camera settings, but thel Moon made it very difficult to get the exposure right! The Moon had a delightful peachy-orange hue, no doubt caused by smoke / Saharan dust or some such.

It's not currently clear here in East Norfolk: if the cloud does break later, a near-full Moon will have moved across towards Jupiter: now that would be good to see!
