Jupiter, Moon, Venus Conjunction II

This evening the triple conjunction was pretty nice from Powell Observatory at Lewis-Young park in Louisburg, KS. Look closely to see the Gemini twins, Pollux and Castor, just above the dome. The 30" telescope can just be seen inside the 20-foot dome. The smaller dome houses a 12" scope used for astrophotography. Hundreds of people listened to talks about astronomy, looked through the 30" and many other telescopes set up in the field by members of the Astronomical Society of Kansas City.
