Jupiter and the Moon

Just a couple of more pics from earlier tonight.  Jupiter is the bright guy below the Moon.

Another one from later when it is darker and you can see Earthshine.

The Moon was next to Jupiter last night but there were too many clouds to get the shot here.  Jupiter will have a nice conjunction with Mercury later this month…will post a notice about that when it happens.
