Astronomical Photography – Exp 4

Just wanted to post this photo of our own satellite – The MOON.

Astronomical Photography – Exp 3

The three celestial objects; Venus, Jupiter & Moon had a close approach in the evening sky and the formation resembled a smiley. I was on the way back to home after office hours; there was not a tripod in my hand. Somehow I managed to get this photograph by placing the camera on top of my car. The 15 seconds exposure left a small trail of the three objects, which you can clearly see in the above picture. The evening was a little bit cloudy, and you can see those clouds also in the above picture. The brightest object other than Moon in the above picture is Venus, and then comes Jupiter.
