Moon/Venus Conjunction on Feb 27th

Once again I was on my way out at the right time and noticed this pairing in the sky. You’d think I’d be more informed right? So I ran back in and grabbed the camera for a few shots.

Moon/Venus, Mercury/Jupiter on New Year’s Eve

These pictures were shot about 6:40PM EST. The first is the Venus/Moon conjunction. The second I noticed accidentally and as it turns out is a Mercury/Jupiuter conjunction. Pretty neat.

The seeing was terrible… hazy clouds and high humidity. But what else is new? 😉

Mercury and Jupiter appear to be sitting on the power lines. I was on my way to a NYE get-together or I’d have gone out and reshot.

Moon over San Francisco

Via a somewhat convoluted surfing route I stumbled across this cool time-lapse movie of the Moon coming out of the recent eclipse and setting at dawn over San Francisco!

Just thought I’d share. Anyone else find “accidental imagings” of the event?
