West Carolona Report for Jan 28th; Venus and Jupiter Near Each Other In Morning Sky

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 28, 2008

I’ve updated the news headlines at West Carolina Report for today, and apologize for not being able to update them over the weekend…a retard took out a power pole down the road, and the phone line got corrupted enough with cross talk to ruin the internet connection.

Maybe the lines will get upgraded enough to allow for DSL instead of the pokey 42K I currently suffer under.

Anyhow, enjoy this photo I took this morning of Jupiter and Venus as they approach each other in the morning sky, reaching just half a degree of each other on February 1st, about the size of the full moon in the sky. If I remember, I’ll post photos of that as well, as well as the moon when it joins them a few mornings later.
