Last week's conjunction

Well, Manitoba was clouded out for the triple conjunction of Venus, Jupiter and the Moon on December 1, but we had a hole in the clouds on Dec 2 that let me see the three of them. The moon had moved higher and farther away, but Jupiter and Venus were beautiful, blazing in the southwest. I managed to snap a couple of pics quickly with my point-n-shoot camera set on "twilight" (although I needed a tripod).

You cans till see Venus and Jupiter, but they're moving fartehr apart - Jupiter is sinking lower, while Venus moves more to the left in our sky. Check out the December update for details of Jupiter's upcoming conjucntions with Mercury at the end of the month!

Clear skies,
