Hi, great to see that you have also viewed this spectacle. This morning I woke up to view the conjunction of the waning crescent Moon and Venus, Jupiter,Alderbaran and Pleiades well I wasn't disappointed the sight that befell me was amazing. I haven't seen the planets this bright ever. Maybe it was because my eyes were dark adapted having just woken up I'm not sure but I'm glad I got up when I did around 5am.
I took some images but as you say they don't do the event justice with my FUJI 10pixel camera but I just had to record it somehow.
I had read about it last week and forgot till I walked out to go to work at 6:45. Wow, what an image to see as I walked down the front steps.
I even went back inside and got my wife to come see.(she was up)
Even she was impressed.
