I took this shot on March 26, 2012 at around 7:30pm. It was during the conjunction of Jupiter, Venus and the Crescent Moon. What was cool about this set-up was that I could also get the Pleiades in the same frame. This was taken with my Nikon D300. ISO-1600 f/5.6 for 5 seconds. From bottom to top: Jupiter, Venus, the Moon and the Pleiades.

I took this picture of some Sun Dogs a couple of months ago. Sun Dogs or Phantom Suns are bright spots in the sky often seen beside the sun, usually when the sun is low in the sky. As you can see in the photo, the sun was close to setting. The scientific name for Sun Dogs is parahelia.
