I read about that convergence which might be called an astronomical "Full House." I tried for a photo but only had my phone and it just did not capture the event. What enhanced the effect for us was 1. the surprise because we did not know about it or anticipate it, and 2. the manner in which they rose in succession directly across the pond, revealing themselves one after another like a curtain raising on a celestial stage. And 3. it was the clearest of nights. We had to look it up to discover that it was Jupiter and Saturn. Full moon, I had that one.
