I was out looking for the Geminids Meteor shower..and thought as it’s a clear sky, will take a photo of Jupiter. (well the last time I tried catching a meteor on my compact digital ..it took me many hours and I got one clip of one meteo..so wasn’t going to do all that tonight..)
Good news is, even before I had set up my tripod, I saw a meteor shooting past.. and within about 5 minutes I had seen about 7..and made 3 wishes (just to be safe..the same wish three times.. rest of the views were just for joy 🙂 )
So took this photo of Jupiter…easily the brightest object as you can see.. (my own astro chart calculations and mobile app confirms it). You can spot the Orion the Hunter to the right.. (and just start to see the glow of the moon to the right – not on this photo).
I;ve marked one of the photos to show the objects..
