The Moon will appear very near bright Jupiter tonight. A real sight to see! The Moon will actually cover the planet Jupiter, from much of South America. Follow the link for more information:   http://www.skyandtel...-187160571.html

was looking at jupiter and the moon, and noticed a very large moon halo. biggest i've ever seen. anyone else checking that out?

it looks like the upper hand, is on the other foot.

i guess they would say we could set this world ablaze

i have never tried to succeed at anything, therefore i have never failed.

I can see Jupiter very near the Moon; saw it early, too, a couple of minutes before sunset. No halo seen, here, in Northern California. I once saw a double-sized lunar halo-- 46 degrees in radius. very impressive, and apparently rather unusual.

I see an orangey halo, very tight round the Moon (central B.C.).

Thanks for the 'heads up' Bison. :) It is a sight to see.

Nope, unfortunately moon halos are limited to the area of the viewer, but I do have a shot I took of the first moon halo I ever saw, which coincidentally also happens to have Jupiter hanging out nearby the halo:

That was from late December last year (the 28th I think, on the full moon).
