looking out my window tonight, I noticed Jupiter in close proximity to the crescent moon. I headed out to my dark side road for some pics. My StarTracker app showed the planet Uranus in the vicinity as well - so I was able to identify it when viewing on my computer screen when I got home.

I got as close a shot as can get with my longest camera lens, of Jupiter and its Moons. Right above this planetary arrangement was the Seven Sisters cluster, so I grabbed a shot of that. While those stars do have a slight blue hue, the exaggerated colour in this shot has been added in post.

It’s been a while since I headed out late for sky observations. It was nice to do it again.
