Image Details:

2021 great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn was highly conspicuous in the west just after sunset. But Since the prolonged low cloudscape in the region of northern Greece would leave no room for observation of the sky, I decided to literally climb above the clouds. At an altitude of about 1820 meters in the second highest peak of Paggaio mountain, the cloudscape transformed into a sea, leaving you to admire undistarbed the magnificent kissing of the planets.
