Last night, Saturday Feberuary 25th, 2012 we got home late, could not drive into the driveway due to the too high snowplow created ridge and had to stop outside on the road. On the walk in, we actually looked up and saw beautiful clear skies and the conjunction in the southwest.
After a quick run up and down the driveway clearing it, putting the van away, the camera and tripod came out to take a bunch of images of this Moon, Venus and Jupiter conjunction. This particular image was the best of the series, 0.5 second exposure on the Canon Powershot A540 and a tripod.
The moon is 2.8 degrees away from Venus.
