Four planets in conjunction on the morning of May 12, 2011 as seen from Mt. Graham in southeast
 Arizona.  To the lower left is Mars, just visible in the smoke and haze from fires in New Mexico.
 On the right (from brightest to faintest), are the planets Venus, Jupiter, and Mercury.  Jupiter is
 slightly elongated, as two of its satellites (Ganymede and Io) are on the left.  On the orginal image
both Europa and Callisto (to the right) can be seen as well.
