The 1st Day of Christmas, or the Actual Day of Christmas

Christmas Evening conjunction of Jupiter, the Moon, Alderbaran, and a little cloud induced lens flare

Photo taken by Ms. Jen with her Nokia 808 PureView.

Tues 12.25.12 – After Astro Bob pointed out the conjunction of the Moon, Jupiter, and Aldebaran in “Heavenly gift awaits skywatchers Christmas night” blog post, I knew I had to after the family Christmas, take myself out and see if I could get a photo of the conjunction with my camera phone.
I waited for most of the clouds to clear to get this photo, taken with my Nokia 808 PureView, as I leaned up against a car and the nearby streetlight flickered off (thankfully). I didn’t remember that I have a perfectly good tripod and camera phone tripod head that I could have used until I got back in to the house.
Merry Christmas!
