1531d 2013/04/14

1531d 2013/04/14 19:00–19:05 EDT Foxmead W deck 8 10x50b

Jupiter in daylight with 10x50b, using the waxing crescent Moon as a guide, 3 degrees away. Easily visible in binoculars but not with unaided eye. About 1 full hour before local sunset. I tried to spot Jupiter earlier in the day, but clouds interfered.

Spring is coming really late this year. This morning we woke to a snow-covered landscape. It's mostly gone now, and there feels to be a little warming in the air.

Temperature = 4.3°C

  1. I did spot Jupiter at a little after 1930 MDT in Denver. Sky was still blue, but Jupiter was very visible just to the right of the moon. :)
