I decided to view/photograph the conjunction from South Mountain and, despite the clouds and haze, the view was pretty good. I believe that Zeta Tauri (magnitude 3.0) is visible near the upper left corner of the frame. But what might the dim object be near Jupiter, at about 11:00? Could this be Ganymede?? This hasn't been processed much, and will benefit from a bit of careful work -- but your comments are most appreciated! https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/644112/Blogs/_MG_6749%20-%20Version%202.jpg Enjoy!
