Venus, Jupiter and the Moon February 2012

Posted on February 28, 2012


Here is my attempt to capture the spectacular waxing first quarter moon. These pictures were taken on February 25 and 26, 2012. There is one shot that has both Venus and Jupiter along with the moon. The other shots have Jupiter only.

These were taken with my Canon Rebel T3. I used a 6 cross filter and a 70-300mm zoom for the close ups.

Hope you enjoy ans share!

I think this is actually Venus (to the lower left of the picture) and the Moon on 2-25-2012

Venus is on the upper left, Jupiter lower right, Moon middle.

Oh, got them all three in this one too! Venus small dot upper left, Jupiter small dot lower left, Moon middle top.
