Moon smiley – conjunction of venus, jupiter and the moon

Posted by jerry on December 1st, 2008 — Posted in Journal

Tonight, despite some cloud I managed to get a rough shot of the conjunction that made the moon into a smiley face. This evening at 21:22 (9.22pm) the moon lined up with venus and jupiter to present a mouth and two eyes overhead just to the south looking from Canberra Australia.

Photo was taken at 1/5th second on f5 on 400 ISO – and the shot was hand held using a canon EOS 1000D and a 300mm zoom.
