Jupiter-Moon-Venus Alignment
Erie, Pennsylvania, February 26, 2012 @ 7:30 pm EST

If you were lucky enough to have clear skies on the evening of February 26, 2012, you were treated to a very cool alignment of Jupiter, the moon, and Venus, near the western horizon. The sky in Erie was mostly clear, with a few stray lines of clouds, which created the effect in this picture. All three objects are overexposed, but it would not have been possible to get the shot without it. The moon, being only a couple days old, was actually nowhere near full.

There is a nice photo of Orion below that I took from my back porch.

The camera for both shots was a Fujifilm FinePix, mounted on a tripod.
