Pics From The Road

Date and Time: Sept 18/10 0130 hrs

Location: Drummondville, QC

Notes: Two pictures of the moon and one of Jupiter and two of its moons.

We are getting very close to Jupiter right now. In fact, on Sept 21/10 is the nearest we will get. The next time we get this close to Jupiter is 2022, because of how the earths orbit is compared to Jupiters. Our orbits are not perfectly circular or flat, so that accounts for the difference in distance that occurs when we lap Jupiter every 13 months.
