the night sky and jupiter

A 15 second exposure. In retrospect, I guess I don't need exposures that long. If you look at the large size image you can see distinct star trails - even over just 15 seconds! Really brings to light how fast our world is spinning!

 

The constellation that Jupiter is hanging out in is Sagittarius, I believe. Scorpio was a bit lower in the sky and over to the right a bit.

 

(The streak in the lower right corner is a plane passing by.)
