A wonderful day and even better evening! My favorite subject (the Moon) and Venus were once again dancing into the sunset together. I love this pair. Here’s a shot.
So there I was. . .
Actually, I have been waiting for this moment for six months. Only I didn’t really know I’d be here to see it. Some time ago, the Moon passed Venus and Jupiter in the evening sky. They actually formed a neat triangle for about a week before Venus dipped below the evening sky to emerge in the morning sky for who knows however long.
Three days ago, I looked into the morning sky while trying to wake up (it was a Monday) and I saw that the Moon and Venus were again flirting in the morning sky. I checked again the following day and saw they were closer. I knew what to expect! This morning, I checked my window again upon waking–and was blessed by a third consecutive clear morning. There they were! On a date! I grabbed camera and tripod and went out to catch them in the act! Here they are–click to view full screen on black.
edit: It was a conjunction!
