Conjunction Nearly Missed

When I left work at sunset I noticed the moon at a perfect angle. I then remembered it was time for a conjunction. However, I had to stop by the store so I couldn't admire it too long. Maybe I would try to linger tomorrow night. I didn't have my camera remote with me so it wouldn't be worth it to try and mount the camera on the tripod for shaky photos would it?

On the way home, though, I decided I should try it handheld anyway. Florida skies can change to cloudy in no time and tonight was completely clear. Not to bad for no stability. From left to right: Venus, Mars, and that constant companion La Luna.

Moon, Venus, Mars

Glad I took the few minutes. The next night was indeed clouded over. Opportunity nearly missed.
