Planetary Photography - 01-19-2017 - Luna, Jupiter & Spica in Southern Sky

Well fellow stargazers, early in the morning on January 19th, I got a really good shot of Jupiter near the Last Quarter Moon about 45 minutes before sunrise in the southern sky. Also present below them is Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo; which showed up quite nicely. 

Later the same morning about 7:45 AM EST, I got another wider shot of Luna and Jupiter in the clear blue morning sky. Spica and the other stars were banished by the risen sun, but the King Planet still shown bright enough to photograph. 
As always I hope y'all enjoy them.
