The Moon is Up
The moon is up
Do not fear
It’s time to drink
Multi-camera moonrise by Jobius Technologies:
And this moon / Jupiter / Venus timelapse is pretty cool too:
This is a good time to update you on upcoming planetary and lunar advisories. The crescent Moon will pass between the two planetary wanders from March 24th to March 26th, which should make for dramatic sunset timelapse opportunities.
The 26th will be another opportunity to spot Venus during the day when the Moon passes within 2 degrees of our thermally disadvantage neighbor. (For perspective, the moon is half a degree wide so that’s less than two fingers held at arm’s length.)
Here’s a shot I took on February 26th at lunchtime with my iPhone (through clouds no less) when they were even farther apart. Venus was surprisingly visible to the naked eye, but only if you were looking directly at it.
