Brian says: ``All photos taken with Sony MVC-FD7 Mavica from 43 Beresford Rd, altitude circa 18m, looking WNW at between 2140 and 2210 BST on 22 May 2002. Steeple is St Luke's Church, Gibbon Road, Kingston. Stars and planets that may be discernible are:

.                   Pollux        Castor                       .

.                                    +    Venus                .
.                                                              .
.                                          +     Mars          .

The brightest object in the photos is Mars or Venus, probably the latter as there was no reddish tint to it, IMHO; Jupiter, above it and to the left is less bright, though brighter than the stars, and visible only in some photos; I believe there is one image in which Pollux and Castor, the Gemini, are just visible above Jupiter. The 5 planets are all still well aligned on the ecliptic but Mercury is probably too close to the Sun to be seen, as is Saturn, at any rate through our murky horizon atmosphere.''

The carving of the Astral Lion at Nemrut Dağı represents the constallation of Leo.   The cresent moon is shown on the lion's chest; the planets Jupiter, Mercury, and Mars are depicted above the lion's back (inscriptions identify them as such).   There are nineteen stars depicted on and by the lion's body.   I believe the large star on the lion's chest is Regulus, which means that some of the stars by the lion's feet are actually in the constallations of Sextans and Hydra.   Professor Otto Neugebauer has identified this carving as the horoscope for the 7th of July 62 or 61 B.C. — either the coronation day of Antiochus I, or when they started to build at Nemrut.   This is the oldest known horoscope in the world.
