I snapped the following last night at 7:05 PM Mountain Time.
Hard to see, but . . . that’s the moon, obviously. The bright dot below it, near the houses, is Venus. The dot directly to the left of the moon is Mars. There is another dot above Mars and slightly to the left . . . Hydor. Click on photo for a slightly larger view.
Note . . . if you have dust on your monitor, you are going to see more dots than are actually in the photograph.
Tonight, in about 10-15 minutes (my time), the Moon, Mars, and Venus will align, forming a line. Unfortunately, it’s too bright for me to see right now. In an hour or two, depending when it’s dark enough, I will try and remember to snap a photo, but Mars (between the Moon and Venus) will no longer be in line with the other two.
The shot above was hand-held in manual shot at 1/80sec, f/2.8, ISO 3200, processed in DxO OpticsPro 10 and Lightroom.
Correction: that was another shot. This one was 1/60, f/2.8, ISO 800, using my Sigma 17-50mm lens.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Astute persons might have noticed these doodles, and correctly surmised they hold some significance for me, and perhaps for humanity at large.
If you click on the doodle, and nothing happens, this is the link it’s supposed to go to: https://disperser.wordpress.com/2011/12/26/palm-vx-and-i/.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.
