Celestial Quadrumvirate

The view from my front porch this morning, about 5:30 a.m.


I’m not sure if those are stars or planets, but I’m pretty sure the big thing is the Moon. The picture doesn’t do it justice, of course.

Update: David Norris set me straight. Two of those bodies are actually planets. That’s Venus at the bottom and Jupiter on the right. The light on the left was very faint in the original photograph — I had to boost it in Photoshop. I think it’s Virgo’s elbow.

    Wow. Almost worth getting out of bed at 5:30 to see – though I’m glad you did it for me.
