We’ve got a conjunction up there. Venus, Jupiter and the Moon are all near each other as viewed from terra firma, creating a “frown,” as National Geographic puts it. But in the above picture from Kenya, it looks more like a smile.
We haven’t done this since the the eclipse months ago (Good grief, it was February! Was it really February? It seems like only recently.) and I probably should’ve asked earlier today but if you take a picture, send it to me and I’ll post it.
Update 7:23 p.m. Just took this from the runway at South St. Paul airport. Lame camera, though. And ignore Flight 837 from wherever.
The conjunction is not only a frown, but appears to be crying, in this picture from Sharon Stiteler. It’s actually quite Van Gogh-like.
