I was monitoring Facebook tonight when a bunch of post about how incredible the moon rise looked this evening. So I stepped out of the house and into my backyard and got a few shots that hopefully will do it justice.


FULL MOON AND JUPITER: When the sun goes down tonight, step outside and look east. Jupiter and the full Moon are only a few degrees apart. This conjunction is so bright, it can be seen even from brightly-lit cities. [sky map]
