Venus & Jupiter

On Saturday night an extraordinary thing happened. Venus and Jupiter did a dance, so to speak. They passed and almost touched. They will not be this close again until 2065. So of course I was out waiting with my camera.
  



Here is a picture I got of Jupiter about a year ago. It looks the same as this year, like a pizza! Can you see the crust edges?

I'm going for a snack now.

“Look up into the heavens! Who created all these stars? As a shepherd leads his sheep, calling each by its pet name, and counts them to see that none are lost or strayed, so God does with stars and planets!”

Isaiah 40

Wow, that's pretty fascinating. I'm either never awake when this stuff happens or if I am, it's too cloudy to see anything. Good thing I read your blog and get to see it here.

I saw this on Memorial Meander's that they saw it in Africa 2. I never see anything like this I never think of it and I'm never awake anyway but I don't think I would even if I were. Good job. It just said on TV that they think they're hearing someone trying to contact us from outer space I wonder if it's coming from one of these. Maybe they're trying to contact you to say stop taking pictures hahaha

I had read about this --but we didn't get to see it.... I'm sure that my son Jeff was outside with his telescope....

Love this entire post. The blog background is PERFECT --and the scripture verse is so appropriate.

Hugs,
Betsy
