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.
