The View From LA

The conjunction of Jupiter (top), Venus (middle) and the waxing crescent moon (er, bottom) over Los Angeles last night. There’s Earthshine on the moon as a bonus. Quite magical. (Apologies for the poor photo, but this sort of more detailed shot is where the optics on my versatile little Canon SD1000 can be found wanting.) (The four bright moons of Jupiter were easily picked out with a telescope I had to hand as well… you can see them over the following nights with a telescope or moderately good binoculars)

Did you get to see it?
