Quick shots of the Moon and Jupiter

Last night, Jupiter was a tiny dot next to the Moon. Between the thick clouds, I took some hand-held photos with my Canon XS through my skylight. The Moon is so much brighter than Jupiter that Jupiter is hard to see next to the glare of the Moon, especially through several pieces of window glass. (I should have gone outside with the tripod and telephoto lens!)

Moon - the dot above it is Jupiter. Cropped out all the extra black space in the wider photo.
