Conjunction of Jupiter and Venus
Mar 14, 2012

They rise in the west at twilight and set at around 11pm. If it's clear where you are tonight (3° apart) or tomorrow night (4° apart), go out and catch it. When you consider Venus's inner orbit and Jupiter's outer orbit and where we all have to be and not have the Sun in the way, and consider the distances, it's a pretty amazing sight.

X100, handheld, f 2.0, 30, 800, 50% crop, levels adjusted for city glare.

These two actually resolve to disks with a higher crop, though with pesky ca showing up.
