Jupiter-Full Moon-Aldebaran in Short Straight Line #5523148 - 11/16/12 04:24 PM
Jupiter, the Full Moon and the first magnitude star Aldebaran will form a straight line with a span of only 5° during the night of 2012 NOV 28-29. For Chicago observers this will occur shortly after moonrise. For observers in Brussels the trio will appear almost perfectly vertical.

Below is a link my photo of Jupiter, the Full Moon and Aldebaran in a straight line this evening. I had to overexpose the Moon to get Aldebaran to print. It was taken from Arlington Heights, Illinois on 2012 NOV 28 at 17:06 CST, which was 44 minutes after sunset and 30 minutes after moonrise.
