On September 25th 2010, I took a picture of Jupiter. In June I looked at the image closer and found that the blue "star" to Jupiter's left was Uranus, when it was near opposition with Jupiter in Pisces.

Taken with an Olympus C-750 UZ digital camera.

Exposure time: 5 seconds, at f/3.7, ISO 50.

Processed and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS.
