After being totally a washout yesterday for the close conjunction between the Moon and Jupiter, I was hoping to catch the second act today. Sometimes persistence pays off. I waited for about an hour this evening for a little thinning of the clouds above my driveway to catch both the Moon and Jupiter (lower right) to peek through. Amazing to think that despite being 750 million km away from us, Jupiter ’s light is still bright enough to pierce through clouds. Just shows that you don’t need to have totally clear skies to see celestial sights.
