Crescent Moon with Jupiter and Mercury

Just like any of you men out there would do if you really loved your wives, as a birthday present for my wife yesterday, I aligned the moon and the planets. You know, just to show her I care. Crescent Moon with Jupiter and Mercury

You'll have to click through to the large version to see Jupiter and Mercury.

I made a little timelapse video, but all you can see is the moon and a few stars and then a flash of Venus at the end.

It's better to watch it in HD on YouTube

This will be the last post of 2008. It's been a good year. But something tells me next year will be even wilder, full of new smells and emotions. Peace out, y'all!
