Mercury and Moon

Mercury and Moon

Statue of Mercury (in downtown Rochester, NY) with the "Strawberry" moon of June 15, 2011. The view is from the Main St. bridge--just past midnight at 12:38 AM. There is a bright dot near Mercury's raised foot, which is the star Antares.
The timing and shooting location for this scene was determined with the help of software entitled "The Photographer's Ephemeris".
