Perhaps have you seen a very bright "star" in the evening, between east and south. This star is in fact the planet Jupiter. Last night I went to the center of Brittany (north-west of France), in a region called "Monts d'Arrée" where there is no light pollution. After having seen some galaxies and nebula with my telescope, I decided to take a photo of Jupiter with my ToUcam:

I work 12 am to 8 am. Jupiter has been a good companion when it has not been too cloudy. Good shots!

Cool images.  Thanks for letting us in on this.
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

And last but not the least, here is the image I took last night; a double transit on Jupiter, with Ganymède and Europa:

Again last night, there was no wind nor turbulences in the air, so I could take a good image:

Really excellent. Great view of Jupiter's Great Red Spot too.

I can't see the pix! Waaahhhh!!! :(
Never mind, I can see them now! ;D
They just issued a tornado warning and said to stay away from windows. Does that mean I can't use my computer?
