The skies are smiling

When I arrived home tonight I was quite taken by the appearance in the sky and upon reading this story I knew something special was happening. So out I went again, camera in hand to take a few snaps

It is a smile - made from the crescent moon and eyes which are venus and jupiter. The photo hasn't been touched up or altered in any way - here's another I took with some passing clouds

If you are in Africa or Europe you will miss out on seeing this and Americans won't see a smile but an unhappy face.

  1. That is the MOST amazing photo!!! I think I find the clarity of the sky almost as amazing as the set-up of stars and moon. . . we never get anything that clear over Toronto!

  4. :) What a chuckle! The reason the Americans are seeing the unhappy face is because it's getting colder, while you're getting warmer!

  6. I was in Charleston, SC in the US on Thanksgiving and got to see the alignment, but the two stars were vertical.
