Sky Watch Friday

Jupiter, Venus and the crescent moon on December 1, 2008. The next time they will be this close is November 18, 2052.
The photo isn't great; I really need to get a tripod, but it was beautiful to the naked eye.

Be sure to visit all the Sky Watchers, here.


  1. I don't have a tripod either, but you did a lot better than I did; I deleted a couple, then my batteries conked out.

  2. Hey, Jan! At least you got it. ;-) I have to wait till 2052 and... that just ain't gonna happen. ;-)

  3. I didn't capture it at all

    you did a great job :)

  4. This is a GREAT shot. I really wish I had stopped with my camera. I saw this on Monday and Tuesday over the lake but you captured it. Good job.

  5. Yes this is a beautiful photo i guess i will never see it as i don't think i will ever live to be that old. LOL but sure am glad you captured it.
    Thanks for your stop over

  6. It IS a great photo. Great job! I love it!


  7. How lucky to see them. We have had cloudy skies here.
    Happy SWF.

  8. Great shot! I missed it thanks to work, so I guess I'll be out with my walker and tripod in 2052!

  9. Jan: I'm glad you shared your capture of the conjuction.
