Tonight actually turned out to be fairly clear so I went for it! What’s it you say? The conjunction of the planets Saturn and Neptune which is supposed to be the best one in 800 years or so. I tried but I couldn’t get a good shot of the planets – they look more like sensor dust but I’m glad I put on all of my snowy cold weather gear and gave it a shot.
Maybe in the next couple of days until the 21st when the planets will be their closest, I will try again… that is if the weather cooperates. Bottom line, even if the weather doesn’t cooperate again (which the weather report is saying) I seized the moment and got to see this celestial event with my own eyes so I feel pretty good.
I think the waxing crescent moon turned out pretty good though.
