So the season up here in Finland is over, the nights almost as bright as cloudy days, and the only things visible in the sky are the bright planets and maybe Vega. And on this latitude the planets are always in the horizon, and it's virtually impossible to get any good image of them but that doesn't stop me from trying!

So here it is, in all its blurriness, Saturn! Taken at 3 AM, at an altitude of about 7 degrees. Not much to look at, but I'm afraid it doesn't get much better than this here up north.
