Three Consecutive Moonsets.
Cloudless weather early mornings from the 4th to 6th of July provided good views of Saturn (top), Jupiter (below it) and the full/almost full Moon descending in the pre-dawn skies over Hospital Hill and Chikanga Township. The comparisons clearly show the upwards retreat of the Moon along its descent path from being far below to between the two planets.
