Celestial Treat

Well....while this pic may not look like much to some.....it is actually an amazing sight. I took this on Monday evening Dec. 1st.
What you are looking at is the moon....along with Venus & Jupiter.

This is said to be the best planetary gathering of the year, simply because it involves three of the brightest objects in the sky after the sun. It had been reported about all over the world.

What a beautiful sight. I must have taken a dozen pictures...but it was only this one, my Last one, that caught the moment! Just thought I'd share!

Thats a fantastic pic, Wanda!
It was a smiley face in Aus, I took a pic, but it turned out quite crappy. (no tripod) Amazing, wasnt it!

Ooh...I had tried to get the "smiley" face, but to have waited for the right time over here would have put it out of my view.
It was pretty awesome though!
