Quod oculus meus videt

Venus, The Moon and Jupiter

Out in the twilight, pre-dawn light to defrost the cars, looking up the street I saw this combination of the Moon and two planets, Venus and Jupiter.

I know they were closer together earlier in the week, but unfortunately cloud was more prevalent so I didn't see them.  Today, the skies were clear, save for the ribbon of cloud you can see just below the heavenly bodies.

Technical:  Got to admit I was lazy - handheld,, high ISO and underexposed by 2.3 stops to prevent the moon from being overexposed.  I just used Auto in Lightroom's basic panel to bring back some detail in the shadows.
