The Moon, Jupiter, and Saturn entertain the 4th of July with fireworks display. 

Jupiter is obvious.

Saturn is the starlike pinprick of light above and to the left of the fireworks.

 

Captured with Nikon D810.

Processed in Light Room and Photoshop CC.

 

On July 4th, 1776 the Moon rose at approximately 11:11 PM with 88% illumination.

 

Tonight, July 4, 2020, 244 years later, the Moon rose at 8:26PM and is 100% illuminated.

 

Enjoy.

 

Here is a better res link.

Thank you all.

I am glad you enjoyed the fun with me.

 

The image is of course composed of two separate exposures...one for the moon and one for the general scene.

I combined them in Lightroom and Photoshop CC.

Thanks again for looking.
