21/365: Luna’s Friend, Jupiter.

I noticed the moon and the rather bright object not far away from it as I left work tonight. When I got home, a friend messaged me and asked if I’d be shooting the Moon/Jupiter conjunction. Normally I’d jump at an outing but it’s like -15C outside tonight, with a windchill at -25 …. so this photo was taken at the end of my driveway. They won’t be this close in the sky again until 2026 apparently. I didn’t quite have as much zoom lens as I’d like for this – I max out at 300mm, but I do have a stupidly high resolution camera (D800) so I can crop down and still get something nice, like this.
