Prince of Wales, NB Nov 1, 2009

Pics taken at around 2030hrs. The telescope is pointed at Jupiter which is a third of the way up in the sky to the SW. Jupiter and three of its moons are visible. The light is broken into a spectrum is the reason why you see differant colors on Jupiter. This is because the planet is too low in our sky. Our atmosphere breaks its light into a spectrum. If Jupiter was higher in the sky, weather lines would be visible.
