Planetary Photography -- 07-29-2017 -- Luna, Jupiter & Spica

On Saturday, June 29th, I took these two shots of the planet Jupiter with the moon and the bright star Spica about fifty minutes after sunset.  

The day before Jupiter had been closer to Luna and Spica in the sky, but cloud cover prevented me to get a good photo. 

In a few days on Wednesday, August 2nd, Luna will be near Saturn in the night sky. I will attempt to get a photo of the meeting weather permitting. Until then keep watching the skies.
