Midday Crescent Moon, Venus and Jupiter

Midday Crescent Moon, Venus and Jupiter

Tucson, AZ

Here's a shot of the recent conjunction of the Moon, Venus, and Jupiter taken at 12:37pm MST. The Moon and Venus were easily seen naked eye,
but Jupiter was too faint for me to spot without binoculars or the camera. Jupiter is in the upper right hand corner, about 1 Moon diameter from the top
and two Moon diameters from the right. Very cool to be able to see a planet (other than the Earth) in broad daylight.

Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM
1/640s f/6.3 at 300.0mm iso100, tripod, timer full exif
