February 2013 Moon-Jupiter Conjunction [☾ ~ #22]

It was during my brother’s wedding yesterday that I noticed something interesting upon looking up in the sky. Apparently, the half-moon is currently only a few degrees apart  from Jupiter

This is the best shot I’ve taken with my camera, with settings:

F-stop — f/4.5
Exposure time — 1/650 sec
ISO speed — ISO-1600
No flash

 And this is how Stellarium projected it.

I am always amused with lunar conjunctions. I am so glad I got to snap an image of this. 😀 Moon and Jupiter will be close to each other for the coming few nights, and it would be nice to observe this. 😀 Ad astra per aspera!
