Jupiter In Opposition

Jupiter (lower left) is in opposition to the sun tonight. The earth is between the sun and Jupiter, and Jupiter is closer to the earth tonight. The last time Jupiter made an approach this close to the earth was in 1963 (59 years ago). There might be a conspiracy in the 1963 approach and apposition. Saturn (upper right) looked on.

Sirius is the bright star in the center third of the photo below Orian’s Belt.

A closer view. I don’t know what was making the streak to the left of Orian’s Belt. It changed position slightly from the first shot.

Jupiter is in the lower right at the treeline.

Mars, The Pleiades, and Uranus are aligned.
