When the Moon is in the Seventh House

Isn't it amazing how things that we see so readily with our eyes often just are "nothing" when seen thru the eye of the camera!

Anyway, two nights ago the position of Jupiter, Venus and the waxing crescent moon  was painfully obvious in the sky.  All three were stunningly bright and the triangle they formed made them stick out like a sore thumb on the horizon.

Of course, I had to try and  photograph them when Toby and I got home from our walk.  Here's the best of the bunch:  Jupiter to the left of the moon, and Venus down in the lower right corner.


  1. So beautiful! Have you seen Mars lately? I think I heard that it's the closest to earth it's been in a while, so it should be brighter than usual.

  2. It's true, some photos can be so disappointing compared to the experience of being there. I guess some things are just best appreciated in person.
