Planets By the Naked Eye

Moon, Jupiter, Venus Clockwise from left: the Moon, Jupiter, and Venus. Taken from Cambridge, MA, at roughly 5 PM EST, 1 December 2008, with a 1.3-megapixel camera phone.

As astronomy pictures go, this is a pretty darn wimpy one. But so help me, every once in a while I look at the sky, and the sense of what's physically out there really hits me.
