The Gas Giant And The Waning Gibbous Moon

After the rain, it was nice to see a clear sky at this morning again. I made it a habit over the years, to look up in the sky and see, if I can make out some constellations, the phases of the Moon, and where some of the planets are at that time of the day. At this morning, I saw the waning gibbous Moon really close by Jupiter and Spica, which is the brightest star in the constellation Virgo. I snapped a photo, before I had to bring Sara to school. Since I was too lazy to get the tripod ready, I did a handheld photo. The price I paid: I don’t have a good photo with Spica in it. Long exposure had fixed that problem. But it was a beautiful sight, and I wanted to share the photo of the Gas Giant and the Moon.
