Venus and Mercury
I captured an image of Mercury for the very first time.  I noticed this bright dot on the horizon, but wasn't sure what it was.  There was a dim star to the left of it.
I looked it up in Stellarium and found out it was Mercury and Asellus Australis (Delta in Cancer).  I did this from my deck in Neptune, New Jersey.
I used my Canon XSi with a Canon 18-55MM lens set at 18MM.  This is a 5 second exposure and taken at 5:09AM on 8/19/2012.
