Taken at the end of a very hot April day, the warmest since 1949 apparently.

The sky was still a little bit bright for UV imaging but if I'd waited any longer then the planet would have dropped below the rooftops of some nearby houses. Despite this and the usual poor seeing, I still managed to tease out some features.
