Now, these are really pretty dreadful shots of it--you can click and enlarge them to see how shaky they are. I took them with my Kodak EZ Share sitting on top of the car zoomed out to 10x. It would help if I would make myself a beanbag for such occasions, though at this distance it likely would not have made a great deal of difference. Don't be afraid to try shooting moonshots with a simple camera, though. You never know what you might manage.
Oh, it was the camera sitting on top of the car, not me. Goodness, what were you thinking? I can just see the image and me breaking something getting down and it wouldn't be the car.
If you want to see some really good shots of the conjunction, try Ramblings Around Texas, and for a real treat go see Bob at Blackholes and astrostuff--a real sky aficionado. Bob tells us that there will be a conjunction of Jupiter, Mercury and the Moon on December 28, visible just after sunset in the southwest sky just above the horizon.
Hoping for clear skies then, and in the meantime, more Skywatch photos will be found linked at the Skywatch site--maybe even more conjunction photos this week. Okay, Blogger is not letting me link that--it's http://www.skyley.blogspot.com/
Oh, you'll want to go see the Astronomy Photo of the Day site, too. December 3 and 4 photos are from the conjunction on Monday. Incredible shots.
