A night to remember!

The weather today was a little strange, alternating between cloudy and clear several times, with sporadic sprinkles, but fortunately there were no heavenly obstructions by nightfall, as the Moon, Venus, and Jupiter made their spectacular joint appearance in the southwestern skies. As they say (all too often), "totally awesome!"

Moon, Venus, Jupiter
