Moon/Jupiter Conjunction for 26Oct2009.

Posted by BC on October 26th, 2009

Sky Map Oct 26 - Spaceweather   Tonight (26Oct2009), just after sunset, look for a Moon/Jupiter conjunction. The pair should appear in the southern sky, in the constellation of Capricornus.

The pair should be easily visible through city light pollution, so observers will not need to drive to the country to see it. Neither should high, thin clouds prevent the pair from being seen.

The conjunction should be an easy target for photographers. See what you can do with it and then let me know if you have a nice shot. Don’t automatically send it to me, but let me know first, then I’ll tell you how to send a photo to me.
