Planer Jupiter is rising in the early evening in our southeastern sky.
On a clear night like tonight it is by far the brightest object in the sky!
I got my camera out on a tripod and, with freezing fingers, tried for a shot with only marginal success.

What you get on pinecam is a small image but three of Jupiter's moons are easily visible and a fourth is just barely breaking Jupiter's horizon in the same line as the three easily seen,

Good luck watching the sky when we have a clear night!

Great photo; especially catching some of Jupiter's moons. Thank you for sharing!

Work-a-holic that I am, I did not get out to view the heavens tonight. :(
