I need to get back to following astronomy again. I was surprised to see the Moon and Venus so close to each other, and only had my phone with me. #stargazing #moon #venus #conjunction #NightSky #tree

I saw the Venus and Jupiter conjunction after all!

I saw the Venus and Jupiter conjunction after all! After the muggy cloud cover all day I figured there wasn’t much chance, but it actually cleared up (and cooled off) after nightfall.

Venus and Mars are all right tonight. My camera arm, on the other hand, seems not to have been as steady as I thought

#Venus and #Mars are all right tonight. My camera arm, on the other hand, seems not to have been as steady as I thought. But wow, nothing like a #conjunction to remind you just how much brighter Venus is than, well anything else in the night sky except the moon. #planets #nightsky #stargazing

Planetary triangle. I had a clear view of the Jupiter, Mercury and Venus conjunction last night, but couldn’t get a picture with my phone. Tonight I had a camera, but power lines hung in front of the only view I had. (I didn’t have time to go looking for another spot.) It makes for an interesting effect, though, doesn’t it?
