Wandering through the realms of the cosmos, pondering its huge vastness

Moon and Jupiter – 10 November 2011

I was in the open area of the Trinoma Mall in Quezon City when I noticed this close pairing of the waxing gibbous moon (99% illuminated) and Jupiter last November 10, 2011. These two objects were ~6 degrees apart.

I never expected to see this celestial conjunction as the sky was too cloudy that night. Fortunately,  I have already set up the camera (without the tripod) by the time the clouds moved away.

I really love to see close pairings of bright sky objects like this one. :)
