Jupiter and the Moon – through a skylight

The Moon is in Jupiter’s neighborhood tonight and Monday night.
The temperature is in the 20’s, as is the wind, which is gusting to 40 mph, howling and buffeting the house.
Sorry, I’m not going outside tonight!
But the Moon an Jupiter ride high overhead, heedless of the wind and cold, visible through our skylight.

So, here’s a few photos, with my Canon XS camera, on my very sturdy tripod, but through many layers of glass.
