Corrales / Moon / Night / Planets / Trees Aligned December 9, 2021 Timothy Price62 Comments Jupiter, Saturn and Venus are aligned with the moon close by, but not quite inline. While I was waiting for it to get dark enough for Saturn to show up clearly, I almost lost Venus in the trees. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

You are amazing, Tim!
Cloudy here again, no good tonight for gazing. Oh that pesky Venus hiding in the woods… (Wonderful images!)
The moon is or was supposed to line up also, but I don’t know if it did or would here. I didn’t see it last two nights because it was cloudy. Thanks, Maj and Sher.
Wow, amazing pics, Tim. Close call with Venus.
Venus was trying to get away from me. Thanks, Jeff.
I saw that. Well done not letting it get away, Tim. You’re welcome.
I feel that there should be a song to go along your photos. It is the age of Sagittarius according to the star sign today! Oh Tim – you know how to light up your posts!!
Thanks, Rebecca. Age of Sagittarius would be good to go with it.
Oh my word, your eye arranged it perfectly
With love holding on
Venus just won’t let go.
Happy Friday Tim
Beautiful sky photos! Do you have a favorite starry sky app?
Thanks, Michele. I don’t have a starry sky app. I use timeanddate.com for Albuquerque on my laptop to see when the moon and planets rise and set. It’s especially helpful for full moons because depending on where they rise, it can be put to 30 minutes after the time they rise before they come up over the mountains.
Thank you. I appreciate it.
I probably should put a star app on my phone. I just never think about.
I tried one several months ago with more frustration than success.
I can imagine.
Seems to be a theme with me and cell phones. 😆
Apps arn’t always what they are cracked up to be.
Lovely as always.
What an alignment! Wow!!!
Can you bottle some of your creativity and energy? Thanks for keeping an eye to the sky , it’s beautiful an so appreciated.
Iwas going to photograph Mars this morning and it’s overcast. Lucky it was clear last night, Thanks, Holly.
The planets wait silently for you Timothy. I wonder if there are life forms up there wondering “where is Timothy?” On those overcast mornings.
That cats definitely communicate with othe live forms
If only they could talk!
Oh they talk. A lot!. Understanding them is another story.
I caught a good shot of my kitty, it’s on IG!
This is where to go to get astrological news, and wonderful photos when the events are missed.
I try to keep up. Thanks, Dawn.
Amazing and that you captured it too.
Terrific photo and diagram, Timothy. I have noticed that bright planet the last few nights when I pulled the curtains closed, and now I realize, from you, that it’s Venus. The sky has been so incredible lately. Thanks for opening my eyes more….
Thanks, Jet. Now you know. Jupiter and Venus have been especially bright.
That is a beautiful night sky photo, Tim. I like the halo around the moon, giving it a soft light. How long was the exposure time?
I’ll have to look at the file at home. But I think it was 2 or 3 seconds. Thanks, Lavinia.
When we get a clear night, I am going to try a few things on the tripod with the Cybershot.
It’s worth a try.
Wow! Amazing, Tim!! I dream of having powerful lenses to see up close planets and stars. Now that is a BIG dream. LOL And that moon ….. what a halo! awesome!
You have a 400mm lens. That’s what I use for getting Jupiter with its moons and Saturn’s rings somewhat. I used my iPhone for the alignment shot. A telescope would be nice for deep space photos and close up shots of the planets.
Hmmmm ……. interesting. A telescope would be awesome with camera abilities. Super cool how you do what you do. I don’t know how you squeeze in the time you do and work as well. You amaze me!
I’m going to get a good telescope at some point.
Good for you!! I will then say the very same. I am fascinated by our sky!
Implies you had a lucky day there Tim!
Nice a clear. Thanks, Brian.
You see & show things I’ve never seen.
What’s the big shiny thing on the far upper left? The moon?
Now I’m thinking about the Age of Aquarius.
“When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars”.
I’m totally wondering what this alignment is the age of?
Thanks, Resa. I’m happy to show you the skies you don’t get to see. The moon is the fuzzy thing on the left. Someone else mentioned the Age Of Sagittarius when Jupiter aligns with Saturn and Venus. Seems like peace is not on us and chaos reigns. Did you see Michael Nesmith died? He was my favorite Monkee. I know all the girls loved Davy.
Ah, no I didn’t see he died!
I never had a fave Monkee. They weren’t my thing.
Although later I came to like “Sweet Young Thing” by Mike. I still like it.
Now, I can say I think “Day Dream Believer” is kinda okay.
I was never a fan, but I did see some of there shows when I was a kid. They were silly and fun. Mike reminded me of my cousin who was killed in a work-related accident in the 60s.
Ah, sorry to hear about your cousin!
Sorry t hear about the tornado devastation.
Were you effected at all?
I think Mike Nesmith was the talented one.
The tornados were nowhere near us. We had mild winds compared to the Southern US. Tornados are fierce.
such great gifts and beautiful clicks Timothy!! 💖 Thanks!
More genius effort, nothing can evade your lens, Tim!
I tried to capture this with my telescope. But I didn’t get what I expected, the saturn isn’t clearly visible in that.
But kudos to you. Such a stunning picture you’ve captured. 🙌
Whoa, at first glance your blog seems to be about poetry, but then you have such interesting posts about space too. I’m not too knowledgable about space, but it does interest me, and I love this pics you’ve taken. Thanks for sharing, Timothy!
Hi Stuart. My blog is mostly about photography, but I’ve done a lot of poetry lately. I like photography the sky and astronomical events.
