Daytime Jupiter Sighting

Jupiter Moon Conjunction

Jupiter Moon Conjunction 10/25

   As a follow-up to my post the other day about seeing Jupiter during the daytime here is a cropped portion of one of the pictures I took of the waning gibbous Moon and Jupiter. The Moon, in this picture, is somewhat overexposed in order to include Jupiter.
   This picture was taken sometime after 7:30 am CDT so the sky was fairly bright but knowing where to look for Jupiter made it an easy naked-eye daytime sighting. Jupiter is the dot in the upper left corner.

Jupiter-Moon Conjunction 10/26

   This is a cropped portion of one of the pictures I took earlier this morning around 7:15 am CDT. Jupiter is the faint dot in the upper right corner. I would have waited a little longer to take these pictures but high cirrus clouds were moving in and covering the area of the sky where the Moon and Jupiter were located.
