Thanks Dali and Andy for reminding me about this astronomical event. Jupiter, Venus and the Moon line up in triangle to form a special conjunction on Feb. 25, 2012. We spent a lot of time online emailing each other about places we liked to shoot this and I kept coming back to this area. Andy didn’t join us he decided to make some progress on his computer project so it was Dali, Phil, and I who shot here. It was fun, but cold!
The forecast called for a clear sky, but we had clouds and a low fog bank. As soon as Venus dropped into the fog we called it a night. The Crescent Moon is in those clouds, but Jupiter and Venus are clearly visible.
