One For The Blog - Smiling Moon

This alignment will take place again in the year 2036.




Smiley Face Moon - Dec 1, 2008

Jupiter, Venus and The Moon

Smiling Face In The Sky
The view from my apartment window


Venus, Jupiter and the Moon
A closer look at the smiling face : ) I've cropped and highlighted it with a circle so that the smiling face is easier to identify. The right Jupiter is dimmer than Venus on the left. This rare sight was gone not long after.

I'm glad I got to see this, thanks Jason for letting me know. It's an awe inspiring moment for me.



Men should take their knowledge from the Sun, the Moon and the Stars.
