Conjunction – December 26, 2011

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season! Here are some pictures I took of the conjunction of the Moon and Venus shortly after sunset on December 26. I used between 5 and 15-second shutter speed, F16 aperture, 200 ISO, and a tripod, for those of you who might be interested. You can see the “dark side” of the Moon due to an effect called Earthshine, where light from the sun bounces off the surface of Earth and dimly illuminates the rest of the Moon’s surface. Hope y’all enjoy, and please comment!
