Description

Correction... Jupiter (not Venus) was quite close to the moon on February 10th at 3:30 PM Pacific time. See : earthsky.org/tonight/moon-closer-to-jupiter-on-february-10 Will open in a new tab or window
I also verified that Jupiter and the Moon were visible at the same time by using Stellarium. I have uploaded a screen capture to my personal web site at: www.loughridge.com/MoonAndJupiterFeb10.png Will open in a new tab or window
We pulled off the road when we saw the Moon peaking over the mountains. Look quite far left of the Moon and you will see Venus (correction: Jupiter) is also in the sky. Venus (correction... Jupiter) is to the left about 12 "Moon diameters". It is about 1 "Moon diameter" above the moon. You will see it as a perfect white circle. It's a bit hard to find so zoom in nearly all the way. As I photographed this scene we could see what we thought was a bright "star", but later using a star chart I determined that we were actually looking at Venus (correction... Jupiter). Thank you Goiserer for commenting about my mistake and alerting me to this error.
