Venus & Jupiter Aug 31st

Here's a photo I took tonight while Wonder Boy was at football training. There was just enough of a break in the clouds to get both planets and Spica in the same shot.
I really have all my digits crossed that tomorrow night the skies will be clear.
If you would like to see some much nicer photographs of this planetary conjunction visit the Bad Astronomer's blog. Warning: he's in California, so his view of the stars is sideways.

Hey, I just noticed that I'm in my own photograph. In the lower right corner, you can see the shadow of my camera and tripod and me standing beside it!
