The Moon and Jupiter

Yup, that tiny speck below the moon is Jupiter!
I know it doesn't look like much on the photo,
but it was really amazing to witness.

I forgot to mention this amazing event from Thursday night. The moon and Jupiter were aligned and could be seen perfectly around 12:30 am in New York. This will only happen once in our lifetime, so we just had to stay up to check it out. It looked like we had a second small moon, but in actuality it was Jupiter making an appearance. With binoculars we could even see some of its nine moons! Even if we were exhausted, it was totally worth it.
