Just one short post. This is a photo I made this evening on my way back from a job. Moon and two planets.
I have never seen anything like this before. Photo is a bit blurry, it was going to be covered with clouds soon and I knew I will have no second chance 😀

That's awesome! I've never seen anything like that live either!
Awww…and WOW! :p
Anyway, there`s no much fun here during winter :awww:
Exactly my thought!!! :happy:
Any way to find out which two planets I wonder?
Maybe 15 years ago or something like that… and only during the summertime :p.
Rose, in 5 p.m. it is always dark in this part of a year. When was it you were here last time? 😀
Very eerie looking. I have seen it here in Arizona and I used to know what it meant…Winter Solstice maybe?
Don`t know. I think it is in December 22nd :left:
Oh wow! That looks really neat!:sst: You either work late, or it gets dark early in Serbia these days…
Those planets are Venus (the brighter one) and Jupiter. This has been in the news quite a bit lately.:smile:
wow! great! 🙂
Sorry, Turkey beat you to it — 😆
Darko this is a stellar picture! ( blurry it doesn't count!) I was looking from my window to see if i can spot anything too,but the New York City sky it is not a moon friendly…I am glad you had your camera with you :heart:
I got to see this in person tonight with a couple of friends. We had talked about this very thing last week, as Venus and Jupiter were beginning to edge closer to each other, and they came by tonight just as the clouds parted in the southwestern sky. It was beautiful! And amazing!
😥 I wish I can see something more than High Sky Scrappers !! this is amazing!!but I am glad my friends did see it :p
Perhaps a bit more serious this time…you may find this info relevant.P.S. I couldn't get the video things to work. But there is a written out script. Also below is a link to the graphics, which on the second one you can see how everything progresssed, with the moon in that graphic moving down through the night sky until it got to the right of Venus, with Jupiter then being up to the right.
Wow! I was hoping to see this today, but the sky was completely clouded over. :(Thanks for posting!
Heh, in my case, the Venus-Jupiter-Luna triangle formed a smiley face. 🙂
Allan – I suppose there are informations in NASA or Hubble web sites, but Star has already provide us with info :)Star – thank you :)Bea – it is great, yes :)Ed, I thought about their flag the moment I saw it, only this time it is turned to another side; thanks for the link :)Angeliki – maybe if you go on top of some tall building :idea:Dan – it is probably because you live on the other part of the world so you could see it in another part of forming :)Eric – I was lucky, because few minutes later it was completely covered with clouds 🙂
That's great! 😉
Thanks Issy 😀
Darko, I thought you would like to see this:http://my.opera.com/Stomyr/blog/ma-este-lesz-az-ev-leglatvanyosabb-bolygofedese#comments
I will check now.
Darko, I saw this last night, however, in Arizona, the stars were underneath the moon and the space between them was half what you see in your photo. This was around 6:30 pm. I had to drive my daughter in law to class but asked my son to take a photo. I hope he did. We shall see the positioning tonight and I will try with my old camera.
I`ve checked this evening but the position of planets are totally different. As Opera user Stomyr mentioned in his post, it will be visible like this again in 2044. Yesterday it was now or never 😀
"Yesterday it was now or never" :irked: Well, then I hope my son took a photo!
Darko, I am in a tall bldg, It is the pollution that blinds the beauty of the sky 😦
very 😎 picture
Thanks Kim 🙂
I just put up a post with a couple of these today yo *double taps chest and makes peace sign* 🙄
I will go check it now 🙂
Great capture Darko! 🙂
Thanks Adele 🙂
I had missed a chance to see it :awww:
You will work somewhere in orbit by that time 😀 No one will need to remind you 😀
Ok, I will if you lend me your wings 😎
Ahhhh, you must find your own wings. I got attached to these ones 😀
36 years :faint: I should have someone remind me 😀
I am sorry. But you are young enough, you will see it again in 2044 🙂
Really? :awww: in a second. So, I'm looking for them now, start from your page :left: :right:
Nice, Darko. I saw that same moon a couple days ago, but on this side of the globe, the two other lights were on the lower right side of the moon… it, too, was striking and interesting.

I wonder, are they the same lights, then? I know nothing of this sort of thing… pretty, though.
These are Venus (closer to Moon) and Jupiter. They are not stars as I heard some people saying because they light is constant so you know they are reflecting it from Sun. There is an interesting link Ed put up here.:)
