Jupiter Meets The Moon

I had no idea what to blip today and then Mr E rang to tell me that Jupiter would be passing very close to the Moon this evening, so I got out the big lens and tried to capture the two together. 

As a 1000 Earths would fit inside the largest planet in our solar system, it is by no means tiny but I thought that this image would suit the Tiny Tuesday challenge, as our Moon looks enormous in comparison. 

If you get the chance to use the magnification feature of your camera, when zoomed it, you'll be amazed at what you can see. I also got the binoculars out and could see four of its Moons :))
