I knew about the then-upcoming conjunction, but “strangely enough” (not), Life got in the way. Luckily, the astral event came to my attention before it was over and I toddled outside with my wee non-astro-camera on a tripod (a Canon Sure Shot). The photos aren’t gee-whiz wonderful, but I caught Jupiter and Venus before they dipped below the western horizon.

Everyone’s favorite Guy In The Sky is still strutting his stuff since the northern hemisphere winter is still clocking along (snow or rain due on Friday), so I also have a shot of the winter constellation, Orion. He’s in the image that looks like a black square. Click the image to give him a hello.

Th-th-th-that’s all folks. Time to go park myself in front of the tube and kick back with a relaxing murder mystery. <insert Loony Tunes sign-off music>
