Image Details:

This is a not-to-scale collage of three objects that were all in the sky today, imaged around noon:
29% illuminated Mercury, The sun with sunspot AR2765 showing, and 0.9% illuminated Venus.
This is sort of their relative positions in the sky, and th image is made more for fun than an accurate representation.
