Moon and Saturn met at the local night skies on 31.05.2018 on 23:30 UTC. I took several photos with different exposure times, and tried to construct an HDR image, but failed. So, this image is a composite of two images: Saturn and the background is from a photo with 1/6 s exposure time, and Moon is copied from a photo with 1/50 s exposure time. Looks nice, but somewhat "artificial".
