The Moon, Jupiter, and Venus lined up last night. Jupiter and Venus managed to shine through the clouds.
Only three nights left before Jupiter and Venus meet as they cross paths from our earthly view.
Jupiter and Venus shine through the clouds, between the trees.
The stars looked on.

These images are especially beautiful.
Awesome pics, Tim. My dad and I were out checking them out again a little tonight too.
They are coming together. Thanks, Bruce.
Great photos! According to information from NASA, the next major planetary alignment will occur on September 8, 2040. The five planets visible to the naked eye – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn – will be in a sector of the sky with a diameter of about 10 degrees. Also between Venus and Saturn we will be able to see the crescent moon. I hope my english is understandable. ) Thank you!
That will be something. I hope to be around to see it and photograph it. I’m be 81 in 2040. Your English is excellent. If you’re interested, I photographed four planets and the moon in September 2016: https://photos.tandlphotos.com/blog/2018./9/four-planets-and-a-moon. Thanks, Narine.
I will be 79 in 2040 )) let’s hope we will be healthy enough to observe that fantastic event 🙂 thank you I will check the photos. Thank you, Timothy!
I agree with Susan, those images are especially beautiful. We have had rain, snow and sleet up here today, with a hint of sun now and then. I missed my walking window working on a computer reinstall instead. More of the same is forecast for overnight. No moon or star viewing this evening.
It was super windy again today. Calm, clear and cold this evening. Thanks, Lavinia.
Neat photos… I need to get out there and look. But it’s been soooo cold!
How wonderous to see you had nearly the same view on Jupiter, Venus and the moon last night as I, so far away.
That is interesting as you are so much farther north. Thanks, Heidi.
Starry starry night… beautifully captured!
Lovely in the cold.
That shade of blue sky really makes the planets pop. Beautiful, Tim.
I love the first photo in particular, such a beautiful indigo sky.
You’re welcome, Tim.
Thanks for capturing these gorgeous pictures Tim. Love the stars looking on 💗
You are welcome, Cindy.
I’ll have to keep an eye out for the convergence – will even get to witness it from a “western” perspective.
Nothing like the wild west. Thanks, Brian.
I’ve been wondering what planets those two are in the sky lately!!! 💫 What beautiful shots you got of them!
Now you know. Take a look every night. You should see them almost side by side on Wednesday. Thanks, Samantha.
You and your camera snap such awesome nighttime photos.
The night creature clicks. I guess you could say. I got the iPhone 13 when it came out because of the LiDAR. I do a lot of low-light, dawn and dusk photos, that I’ve put my photo equipment together to help accommodate darkness. Thanks, Dawn.
Fantastic skies, Tim!
Here….sky… sort of. xo
I wish Linda and I had gone up to the mountains to see this convergence – although the 70mph winds coming through there at the time was making things uncomfortable during our birding excursions during the day.
Those winds probably blew the convergence away form LV so you could have seen it anyway. Thanks, Brian.
