More Sky Show with Venus and Jupiter and Now Including the Moon

More sky show with the planets Venus and Jupiter today included a crescent moon at 6:09am MST. Dawns began with crystal clear skies over the Sandia Mountains. The bright object closest to the mountains is the moon; then Venus; then in the upper right hand corner, Jupiter.

More Sky Show: Moon, Venus, Jupiter over Sandia Mountains at Dawn

Check out Sky and Telescope for celestial events you might want to look for this week. I missed some in the past few days, partly because of cloudy skies and partly because I slept through them. 🙂

As long as I have lived in New Mexico and as old as I have grown to be, I never cease to be amazed at the constantly changing and ever-beautiful skies of my adopted state.

    1. Hi, Tim. It was really beautiful. I was almost too late to catch it, and I wished that I had gone out earlier (I was awake!) as well as looked at the skies the past few days. Oh, well… 🙂
