Tonight though, Jupiter had a close meeting with the full Moon and it looked just lovely in the early evening sky at 6pm.
If you look closely at Jupiter you can see three tiny moons beside the planet. (Quite incredible you can pick them up with just a zoom camera lens!)
We are away at the moment and these images were taken at a beautiful place called Cotton Tree Holiday Park at Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast.
I used a Canon 70D camera and an 18-400mm Tamron lens on an ordinary tripod, the exposure was 1/8th second and ISO100.
