    The Moon and Jupiter

    If you find yourself outside tonight and if the sky is clear, what will look like a "bright star" near the Moon, this is Jupiter.
    Please say if you see it, as it's raining here! and maybe post a photo?

    I saw it last night\this morning, had to get my iPhone app "Skyview" to identify it. I'll grab a pic if it shows itself tonight.

    This is visible most nights here, it is especially bright tonight, can see mars as well I believe, great night for star gazing here!

    I took these at about 3am today with my iPhone, but it was about half the distance away from the Moon at around the same time yesterday than it is today.

    In the first picture I've labeled Jupiter & circled a blurry object (?) that wasn't visible when I took the photo, it appears in a few other of the pictures I took too, but it seems to move around?? Nibiru???

    This next picture was to capture the Orion Constellation below the Moon & Jupiter, but although I could clearly see it with the naked eye, it doesn't show in the image. ..more's the pity.

    I'm only a keen amateur stargazer but i believe only Jupiter and Venus will be seen in November, Mercury Mars and Saturn are to near the Sun's glare.
    You will see Venus before sunrise.
    I posted last night thinking it's easy to find Jupiter being so near the Moon, it will be there again tonight but with more distance from the Moon as we see it.

    no tripod! I'm actually quite disappointed with the results, I expected better from the 4S.

    I work nights so I get to do a lot of star watching, but I can't take a proper camera on the job - the boss would consider it a p*** take.

    I've just come off night shift (offshore North Sea) and have been bamboozled by the moon and the bright dot beside it for the last 4 nights! Thanks for pointing out that it was Jupiter! Off home now to buy a telescope!

    On the subject of space and planets! Ever wondered how big the Earth is compared to the known universe?

    Nice image ...that puts to bed all the conspiracy theories that the moon has suffered a pole shift or is missing and has been replaced with a Hologram.

    That is a very sharp image - I couldn't see the Jupiter's moons with the naked eye

    don't know what time that picture as taken, but when I saw it this morning (around 04:30) in Hertfordshire, Jupiter was on the right of the Moon.

    That pic is amazing, as I say last night it looked amazing!!

    On my way home today about 5.15pm, the moon looked huge, was quite low and a reddy brownish colour....unfortunately I couldn't get any pics as I was driving, it did look good though.
