The panorama is a composition resulting from taking well over 60 different frames - no, I didn't use them all in the final image!
I think it captures the breathtaking view that is to see that huge blanket of fog over the Silicon Valley.
Venus, Saturn and Mercury can all be seen, in the far right. Venus, the brightest point in the sky is hard to miss. The also bright point below Vnus is Saturn, and even lower and a tad brighter than Saturn, is Mercury. That's their position on Saturday morning (October 10th, 2009) around 6-6:30am.
The images were taken from this vista point on Friday and Saturday morning: in Skyline Blvd., a road that cruises along the ridge of the Santa Cruz Mountains on the west of the Silicon Valley.
