Light and high beauty, indeed

The Moon, Venus and Jupiter, shining bright over Denver earlier this evening:


It was a Venus-Jupiter conjunction in 2005 that first gave me the idea for what would become the title of this blog, "Light and High Beauty." Tonight's stunning three-way conjunction of those same planets, plus the Moon -- the three brightest objects in the night sky -- was even worthier of that name. Absolutely beautiful.

The above photo, incidentally, was taken from the 33rd-floor sun deck of the Barclay building downtown. It's a 0.6 second exposure, with a 3.5 f-stop and a 200 ISO.
