Yesterday I came home form work late at night and was too tired to go out photographing the conjunction - although the sky was pretty clear. Now a bit before local dawn the clouds of an emerging cold front are crossing our sky, I had to wait a while until Moon and Jupiter had appeared in a gap of these clouds, but just because of the clouds a small aureole was present on Jupiter. Even two small spots of the Galilean moons of Jupiter can be seen on the second image. Konica-Minolta Dynax 5D with 50mm Minolta lens, f2.8, ISO200, 1.3 sec exp.
