Conjunction

I’m very excited to share a time lapse video that I recorded of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction last night from the Foothills Parkway. Not surprisingly, there were quite a few people at the Caylor Overlook. I overheard several people chatting about it. “Where is the Christmas Star?” was a common quip. “Is it going to do something?” was another. I don’t think people realized it was just a couple of planets close together. Personally, I didn’t expect much based on that. But for me, any night that I’m out looking at sunrises and stars is a good night, and seeing first hand a phenomenon that has not occurred in centuries was kind of fun. Was it worth photographing? I’ll let you decide for yourself based on the time lapse. FYI, the images in this sequence were shot at 60 mm then cropped to HD format. That should somewhat approximate the field of view of the human eye. Enjoy!
