Venus & Jupiter Conjunction

If you happened to look up in the sky this past week, you may have noticed two bright "stars" in the West after sunset. Actually, you are seeing Venus and Jupiter in a close encounter with one another. They are about 3 degrees apart on March 12 and 13, 2012. Last night I ventured outside with my camera mounted on my tripod and began snapping away. Unfortunately, they are right in line with the flight path and I got a few pictures that reflect that. But somehow, they add a little character as you can see by the picture on the right.

So go on outside tonight and look up to see this beautiful sight. And then turn around and look towards the East to see Mars chasing after them.
