Mercury and Saturn Close Conjunction

Mercury is the brightest Planet, and Saturn is the dimmer one under Mercury above Walton Lighthouse in Santa Cruz, CA. I don’t know what the faint star to the right is called.
As expected I didn’t see ISON at all and it didn’t show up in my photos. It’s too close to the Sun now to be seen.
