Look up at the sky!

3/13/12 - Venus-Jupiter Conjunction
Here's my live shot of the Venus-Jupiter conjunction tonight lol. My cell phone has limitations apparently! Some guy driving by pulled over to ask what was in the sky LOL. I told him about the conjunction and he thought it was cool. Except I forgot it was Jupiter and said Uranus LMBO! 


Anybody else find the night sky fascinating? I've been meaning to download an star app to show me what's up there as I see it. Any good suggestions? For a Droid I mean :)


Here's a great article (and real picture) via National Geographic of the conjunction. It will peak on Thursday 3/15.
