Conditions couldn't have been better for viewing this rare sight in the night sky just before dawn this morning (Thursday 28th January 2016).

Roger's breathtaking shot faces towards the south - south east of the night sky. Jupiter can be seen to the west of the moon. Mars, Saturn and Venus appear to descend towards the horizon to the east of the moon.

Roger has even managed to capture Mercury as it rises just above the horizon and a few thin high clouds associated with a weather front to the south.

If you missed this morning's display, all five planets will be visible in the early morning sky until 20th February. Hopefully, we will be lucky enough to enjoy another morning as clear as this one.

The weather warning covers much of the Anglia region and is in force until 10am on Thursday 21 January 2016

"Clear skies, light winds and rapidly falling temperatures have allowed patches of fog and freezing fog to form.

"These are expected to become widespread overnight, but will start to clear southern counties around dawn as wind speeds start to increase. However, fog and freezing fog will be slower to clear in the north, for example Vale of York."
