A black & white flag in the evening sky

My son found the perfect way to interrupt my absolute concentration on work this evening: by pointing out that the Moon, Venus and Jupiter were forming a jewel-box of an arrangement in the evening sky. And sure enough, they were. So I took a bunch of shots, of which I kept the two that comprise this set here.

If you’re in the West, somewhere amidst the Pacific or the Far East this evening, you’ll see it too.

    Great pictures, but you missed last night, when the moon was down and to the right of the planets, and made a perfect emoticon smiley : )

    I saw last night’s beautiful sky well since I was in Solvang, but back here in Santa Maria tonight I saw fog 😉

    I saw it here in the Finger Lakes of New York, about 5:30pm, local. I was driving home from town and saw it hanging over a hillside with a great view. I’m not an ardent celestial observer, but it occurred to me: “That’s odd. I don’t recall ever seeing that before.” Go home and heard it on the news, and ran right back out to look at it again.

    I thought that was a treat.
