Venus goes lower into the sky as December rolls on. eventually the camera will have to rotate to get all three dots in the same frame. the Panasonic LX3 captured this around 5:30 AM on December 12 over San Francisco, CA. one of the dots to the left is comet Catalina. although at magnitude 4.4 it will look like every other just a star if it it there at all.
