Venus-Moon Conjuction Photo - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

You might have read in the news about the close conjunction of Venus and the moon today (March 26, 2012), and that it would make brilliant Venus easy to find in the daytime sky. Fortunately for me, the Erie, PA, sky is crystal clear today, so I grabbed the camera and tripod to get a picture of it.

The moon subtends an angle of anout 0.5 degrees, so that makes the separation from Venus about 4.4 degrees. That's pretty close for a conjunction.
