You captured these two beauties wonderfully, Peter! Great shot!!
....peter:): thank you Elizabeth....petersmile
Terrific. I missed the moon and Venus side by side the other night. It was so beautiful but I was caught cameraless.
....peter:): it sucks when there is such a special event that is within your grip and you left your camera at home....petersmile
Joli dans ce ciel bien clair.
....peter:): merci Martine... c'est surprenant de voir combien les étoiles se déplacent en un quart de seconde...bise....peter/pierresmile

If it had been Jupiter and Mars It would be the dawning of the age of Aquarius grin
....peter:): i agree Bill... at the time Mars was in the second quadrant to the right of the Jupiter-Venus, is alignment....petersmile

You have such huge skies, Peter
....peter:): it's about the same as your sky Lisl... but we have just fewer buildings and very few city lights out here in the country....petersmile

For a evenings Jupiter was stalking the sickle moon from behind - around 20:00 in our part of the world.
....peter:): that would have been a great spectacle to watch Louis... in winter i do my star gazing through of my bedroom windows...

Superbe, ta photo est magnifique Peter, merci pour ce beau moment douceur! Bise à  vous deux, bonne journée toute douce!
....peter:): Merci Maria-Lina!
C'était une nuit très paisible et j'ai eu l'occasion de regarder les planètes traverser le doux ciel pendant des heures ... j'ai pris cette photo juste avant 23:00 h ... Bisous et passer une soirée agréable....peter/pierresmile
I have been watching the alignment that is happening now with the moon. So incredible last week with the fingernail moon in the middle.
....peter:): Louis mentioned the same thing Mary... i haven't had a chance to view it this week it has been very cold here... we are in the middle of a blizzard today... -20°C with wind gust to 42km/h....petersmile
Well captured, Peter.
....peter:): thanks Frank... it's surprising how much the stars move in just one quarter of a second....petersmile

Wow this is fantastic - like everyone else I am hoping it is a good omen - we need some positive spin.
....peter:): Thanks a bunch Mike... i agree that we can use a lot more love in this world... 2016 was a bitch....petersmile
Wonders in the heavens...
....peter:): so many wonders Larry... i have taken so many pictures of the night skies... i would have to live to 100 to post them all on SC....petersmile
