Whoa Now.

Hold on to your seats, I'm about to blow your mind.

Guys.

Did you know you could see Jupiter outside last night?

It was just out chilling with the moon.

Amazing, am I right?

And... if I knew how to use my camera I'd have more awesome photos for you. But unfortunately... well, we all know how that's going.

(See that bright dot on the left? Jupiter.)

(I think it looks a lil blurry because there are actually 2 moons right there with the planet. But my lens and camera is not that powerful, let's be real.)

So that's what I got.

Fortunately for me... my dad was around. And he was all "Blah blah blah shutter speed blah blah blah f-stop blah blah..." and so I got a picture.

I mean... considering I don't have the right lens yet... I'm patting myself on the back. Go, self, go!

And yesterday my friends were all "blah blah move to Chicago" and "blah blah move to Indy" and yadda yadda yadda.

And then I drove home through the cornfields and realized....

Right here? Right now?

It's not so bad.

Some people might even say it's quite peaceful.

I would be one of those people talking camera speak in your ear, sounding like the teacher from Charlie Brown to you. ;)

I saw Jupiter too! I was walking scruffy and I was looking at the low beautiful harvest moon and then I saw jupiter over on the side, nice and bright. both looked so LOW!

1. I miss my day. I mean, he's around, just in another state.

2. I wouldn't know Jupiter if it bonked me in the head.

I ended up outside with my camera after your tweets. However, my desire to see the details of the moon overrode my desire to see distinguish Jupiter in the picture.

I tried to take a pic of the full moon as well. That is one thing I haven't mastered yet. I need a tripod first off, and second, I have no idea what kind of lens I need for that!
