What�� planets are those behind that unusual�� rock spire? Saturn (lower left) and Jupiter.��  This month, after sunset, the bright planetary duo are quite prominent toward the southeast.��  Now your view of our Solar System’s largest planets might not include a picturesque hoodoo in the foreground, nor the spectacular central band of our Milky Way Galaxy across the background, but should be quite eye-catching anyway.��  The featured�� image is a composite of consecutive foreground and background exposures all taken in late May with the same camera and from the same location — the badlands of the��  Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness in the San Juan Basin in New Mexico, USA.��  The rock spire, informally dubbed ‘Alien Throne’, stands about 3 meters tall. Saturn and Jupiter will remain visible together after sunset for several months.
