I manage to take this picture by waiting for the clouds to uncover many of the planets as much as possible, so I finally got Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, the Moon and a nice display of clouds! (Sorry, no Mars... I'll wake more early tomorrow to try to get the red planet too in a much darker sky). Photo details: Sony A290 DSLR. ISO-200, 55mm at F/5.6, 1.6s exposure.
