Dec 232020

Jupiter and Saturn drew to within 1/10th of a degree in the sky on December 21, 2020. On that day it was completely cloudy here on Whidbey Island. But on the following night, Dec 22 we noticed a break in the clouds in the west just above the horizon. We drove over to the bluff overlooking Lagoon Point for a view. Using a hand-held Canon DSLR with a 300mm lens, I captured this photo. Two moons of Jupiter, Europa and Ganymede are just barely visible in the frame.
