Image Details:

The conjunction of Venus and Neptune will occur 2 nights from now. But Neptune will be lost in Venus' glare and very difficult to image.
Venus is 60,000 times brighter than Neptune! (even tonight I cannot make out Neptune thru my binoculars)
But the four psi Aquarii stars can be seen. Venus is only 1,500 times brighter than them!
