Forecast doesn't look good for the whole week so looks like this is as close as I'm going to capture.

Blend of a 30 s exposure for the sky and 80 s for the foreground with Pentax K-70 and Sigma Art 35mm @ f/2.5

That's a nicely composed image Stargazer.

I just caught the conjunction tonight from the back bedroom window with my guide scope!

Regards

Thanks! That place is a bit of a drive but very much worth the trip.
