Moon and planets

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 πŸ˜€

  4. gdare says:

  5. ricewood says:

    Any way to find out which two planets I wonder?

  6. rose-marie says:

    Maybe 15 years ago or something like that… and only during the summertime :p.

  7. gdare says:

    Rose, in 5 p.m. it is always dark in this part of a year. When was it you were here last time? πŸ˜€

  8. PainterWoman says:

    Very eerie looking. I have seen it here in Arizona and I used to know what it meant…Winter Solstice maybe?

  9. gdare says:

    Don`t know. I think it is in December 22nd :left:

  10. rose-marie says:

    Oh wow! That looks really neat!:sst: You either work late, or it gets dark early in Serbia these days…

  11. Stardancer says:

    Those planets are Venus (the brighter one) and Jupiter. This has been in the news quite a bit lately.:smile:

    Sorry, Turkey beat you to it — πŸ˜†

    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:

  15. Stardancer says:

    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!

  16. ellinidata says:

    πŸ˜₯ I wish I can see something more than High Sky Scrappers !! this is amazing!!but I am glad my friends did see it :p

  17. edwardpiercy says:

    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.

  18. CedarFox says:

    Wow! I was hoping to see this today, but the sky was completely clouded over. :(Thanks for posting!

  19. dannyjr says:

    Heh, in my case, the Venus-Jupiter-Luna triangle formed a smiley face. πŸ™‚

  20. gdare says:

    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 πŸ™‚

    That's great! πŸ˜‰

  22. gdare says:

    Thanks Issy πŸ˜€

  24. gdare says:

    I will check now.

  25. PainterWoman says:

    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.

  26. gdare says:

    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 πŸ˜€

  27. PainterWoman says:

    "Yesterday it was now or never" :irked: Well, then I hope my son took a photo!

  36. gdare says:

    Thanks Adele πŸ™‚

  37. thaodp says:

    I had missed a chance to see it :awww:

  38. gdare says:

    You will work somewhere in orbit by that time πŸ˜€ No one will need to remind you πŸ˜€

  39. thaodp says:

    Ok, I will if you lend me your wings 😎

  40. gdare says:

    Ahhhh, you must find your own wings. I got attached to these ones πŸ˜€

  41. thaodp says:

    36 years :faint: I should have someone remind me πŸ˜€

  42. gdare says:

    I am sorry. But you are young enough, you will see it again in 2044 πŸ™‚

  43. gdare says:


  44. thaodp says:

    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.

    Nice, Darko. I saw that same moon a couple days ago, but the two other lights apparent were on the lower right side of the moon…

  47. studio41 says:

    I wonder, are they the same lights, then? I know nothing of this sort of thing… pretty, though.

  48. gdare says:

    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.:)
