Quarter Moon Jupiter Conjunction
Tonight, I saw another close conjunction of the Moon and Jupiter. The phase was a waxing quarter moon, unlike the full moon at November's conjunction. However, this conjunction was about half the separation at about 45 arcmin. Seeing a clarity were rather poor this evening, so I was not able to get a clear image of Jupiter's surface bands.
