Unusual alignment!

Yum


The moon, Jupiter and Venus aligned themselves in an unusual way last night. Bob and I went out to observe this event that comes around once every 50 years or so. I am quite the astronomy freak... spent nights and nights watching Haley's comet, tracking the length of the tail...

Did you see this in your neck of the woods?

  2. It has been stunning. I kept looking at it tonight as we were out around our little town. They say that in Australia it looks more like a smiley face.

  4. Dang, I missed it.
    I'm sure my neighbor (with his freakishly large telescope) caught it.

  7. Yep, we went out to look at it the last two nights. I didn't realize I could get a photo though. Drat.
