If you remember the post October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month where I told the story about the office baby shower for a guy, the baby was born yesterday, October 26th, on my birthday. The baby weighed in at 6 lbs 14 Oz. Congratulations, new Dad and new Mom!
Sunset. Dusk with Jupiter and Saturn. Jupiter through the trees.
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.
9:30 pm last night. Jupiter is in the lower left of the photo, and Saturn is close to the right edge of the photo.

Jupiter and three of its moons at 1:30 am this morning. I woke up and 1:30 am and remembered I had left the drip systems on, so I got up and turned off the drip system and photographed Jupiter. I forgot my iPhone, so I didn’t get any wide-angle photos of the sky at 1:30 am.

Jupiter with three of its moons at 5:30 am this morning. It’s interesting how the moons change positions through the night.
