Jupiter is now so bright that I could see a halo arround the planet last night. The fact that Uranus is right "next" to it is a big bonus and it`s amazing to be able to observe two gas/ice giants next to eachother. Next thing that happened, the clouds disappeared to be replaced with the green glow of auroras - never have I seen such a pair in the sky against a completely green background! Nikon D3, Nikkor 300mm + 2x converter.
