Two Planets (OK, Well, Three)

From the backyard tonight, a bit of sunset, two bright planets high in the western sky.

Jupiter up high, just under the gap in the tree branches, Venus down low, just above the chimney.

A little better look.

From over the garage as it got darker.

Of course, from where we live, if you wait long enough, you’ll get an Identified Flying Object.

In this case, identified as FedEx flight 1623 on final approach to Burbank Runway 8 from Portland.
