4" refractor + Canon 6D

PS, crop and enhance.

Image Details:

Mercury on the western horizon, still visible with the naked eye after the sunset.

And pareidolia: "Fire breathing dragon trying to catch Mercury"
Pareidolia ia a tendency for incorrect perception of a pattern known to the observer - and I'm sure that now you all see the dragon in the image! :)
