I decided to go to western coast of Lampung's Bay (Lat. around 5.5 degree south), so I could enjoy and take a clear picture of this rare beautiful planetary conjunction. I took this picture around 5:10 AM (local time UT+7). The bright source of light pollution below the planets is Port of Panjang. I also took a zoomed version of the top three planets (Jupiter, Venus, and Mercury), and I was able to capture some of Jupiter's moons as well.
