The smiley sky

Numerous other people have taken pictures of tonight's Moon/Venus/Jupiter "smiley face" conjunction, but this is the one I took from Echo Point in Katoomba on behalf of a person who was there with a compact camera that couldn't get the shot.

 

When I got back to Echo Point with my big camera, I couldn't help but notice more hapless compact-camera flashes being directed into the uncaring night. So two people are actually being notified by e-mail of the existence of this page.

 

It was a little hazy, so this isn't technically the best shot it could be. But this is what it looked like when we were there.
