Yeah, I saw that tonight. Didn't realise it had a name. It was quite strange.

Yeah i saw it too, from the train as it crossed the rail bridge. It was a lovely sight! Then as it got darker, after a wee bit shopping, I waited for my bus on Princes St,  and noticed Venus setting over the castle and Jupiter rising over Calton Hill.

Nice catch. I've heard of these but never witnessed one. Must keep my eyes open more often.
