Celestial Conjunction and other Stuff

After work tonight, I stuck around the Groton area to photograph the conjunction of three solar system bodies – the Moon, Jupiter and Venus – in the evening sky.  Luckily the clouds cooperated again and I was able to get some decent shots of the trio in the sky.

While along the Thames, I got a few various shots of what I came for – the trio of planets – along with a couple shots of Shaw’s Cove, Thames River draw and the USCG’s Barque Eagle.  And without further adieu, here they all are!
