The moon and Jupiter

That’s a photo I just took of the Moon – and beneath it, Jupiter.

Jupiter! I can see Jupiter with my eyes?! That’s incredible. Apparently our orbits are close at the moment. Even so, if we are at the closest it’s possible for the Earth and Jupiter to be to each other, it’s still 630 MILLION KILOMETERS AWAY!!

I think that’s amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Jupiter before – but it’s so bright. I could even see it without my glasses. So much for shortsighted.
