As Jason remarked and sketched so well, thin cloud made this beautiful conjunction even dramatic.

Pencil on white paper, Moon inverted then the whole thing inverted again in Paint.net. A bit more computer fudging than I like but it seems to work.

Oops, fixed the date.....

How fantastic with the additional element of the Jovian satellites! Yes, I believe you pulled off the thin cloud cover rather nicely. I have learned to accept the computer for what it is. In certain aspects I feel he computer offers power and control over the final product. It's a medium like anything else. Well done. :cool:

Mel,

Very nice, I was hoping to see a view with the moon of Jupiter included.

This is very nice, I was clouded out.

Frank :)
