Planetary Photography - 10-28-2016 - Luna & Jupiter In Morning Sky

Wow this month has certainly been a good one for this blogger in terms of night sky photography. 

Early this morning a clear sky presented a great opportunity to capture the meeting of the waning crescent moon with the king planet Jupiter in the eastern sky just before sunrise. A truly beautiful sight of Luna in a thumbnail crescent with Jupiter as a bright morning star joining beside her just over the treetops. 

As always I am happy to share these views with y'all. Tonight, I will try to get a photo of The Red Planet as it reaches its perihelion -- closest point to the sun in its orbit -- in the night sky.
