    Thanks for the heads up. I went outside and got a fine view. I then grabbed my Kollsman periscopic sextant and took these sights:

    Greenwich date 12-02-2008.

    Venus, 023729 Z , 11º 02'

    Jupiter, 0283945 Z, 11º 22'

    Moon LL, 024407 Z, 13º 37'

    I then grabbed my MA-1 pendulous mirror hand held Kollsman sextant and shot the moon as the planets had set behind my neighbors roof line.

    Moon LL, 024714 Z, 13º 05'

    I then grabbed my other MA-1

    Moon LL, 024849 Z, 12º 52'

    I then grabbed my MA-2 bubble hand held Kollsman sextant

    Moon LL, 025028 Z, 12º 42'


    AP 34º 16.6' N, 118º 54.0' W.

    Well, it was solid overcast and snowing in Chicago today. Did anyone with better
    weather get to see the crescent moon next to Venus and Jupiter this evening?
