Full Moon Aligned with Jupiter & Aldebaran - 11/28 #5540337 - 11/26/12 01:43 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 Chicagoland observers this will occur shortly after moonrise. For observers in Belgium the trio will appear almost perfectly vertical. Jean Meeus e-mailed that he'll be watching from Brussels.

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.
