It's CONJUNCTION night! Jupiter and Venus!

About 9:35 pm PDT, I went out doors, looked to the west and there is a spectacular conjunction of Jupiter and Venus (the brighter one on the lower right) ! This is the closest they will be to each other visually for some time to come.
Also captured in the image (Canon t3i with a 1,000 mm lens) are Jupiter's four major moons! From upper left to lower right they are: Ganymede, Io, Europa, and Callisto. That was a photo surprise for me!

Just as spectacular in binoculars right now, too!
