Jupiter near the Moon, with Clouds and Branches

Using my new mini tripod on top of our car, I took some photos of Jupiter (lower left) and Jupiter through some branches and some clouds. The clouds bent the moonlight to make a corona around the Moon.

This is a more colorful shot, with a longer exposure. The camera slipped a bit during the two second exposure, making Jupiter into a streak.
