The Moon Meets Jupiter

Moon Meets Jupiter

Our South City photographer Roger Cain told our readers this past Monday (January 21) ‘Get outside and take a look at the moon right now. You will see the moon and a bright “star” next to it. That “star” is Jupiter.  It is hard to shoot Jupiter next to the moon any closer to view as a large lens will leave them farther apart in the picture, thus it looks more like a spot in the picture.
