Thanks for the kind comments. I hope you all had a chance to see the pair so close together.

I saw the pair right next to each other just outside my apartment a short time after sunset, so it wasn't wholly dark. It took a bit of neckstrain with the binoculars as the pair was almost directly overhead and about to go behind the awning. Then I had to tend something on the stove and was going to go downstairs after dinner for another look, but actually forgot!

Erika,
I have been enjoying your sketches and observing notes on your site. I just started sketching about 2 months ago and have a long way to go. Great information on your site. Keep up the good work.

Daytime Jupiter and Moon, Canon T2i, 18-50mm kit lens, about 10-degrees F. Never seen a daytime planet before, not much to look at but weird. Posted Image

The second one is a direct photo. Details can be found in the metatada.
