Pic I shot early on Saturday...north of Phoenix...Venus burning bright just before sunrise. With clear skies again Tuesday morning...Venus will dominate the predawn sky all this month. Wednesday morning will be a bust with clouds and rain in the forecast.
Pic I shot around 2:15 a.m. on the way to 14...Jupiter with the setting Moon. Jupiter and the Moon will be dance partners again tonight.
According to EarthSky.org., look to the south after sunset. Jupiter will be above the Moon...just like my previous photo. If you go out late...Jupiter will be near the Moon all night long or a least until 2:30 a.m. If you catch Castor and or Pollux...these are the brightest stars of Gemini.
Do you have a telescope? Wait until Earth’s moon moves away, then try to view Jupiter’s four major moons through your scope. Jupiter has at least 63-Moons...but the primary four: Io, Europa, Callisto, and Ganymede. 14 viewers...even in moonlit skies...have captured the 4-primary Moons.
Great viewing tonight...please share pics and stories if you have time.
