View of the full moon and Jupiter from Samuel Beckett bridge

No need for a telescope to see the moon and Jupiter next to each other in tonight’s sky…

THE FULL MOON and planet Jupiter are blazing brightly near each other in the sky tonight – so brightly and clearly that there’s no need for a telescope to see them.

This is how the spectacle looked from Dublin’s Samuel Beckett bridge this evening…

(Thanks to the anonymous reader who sent the photograph!)

We have had a few more photos sent in from readers:

Another reader, Seán Ó Briain, sent us in an almost identical photo – note the slightly different location of Jupiter.

From an anonymous reader – a retro-looking Moon and Jupiter over Sligo

From reader Danny Corrigan, the moon near the Convention Centre.

Another pic – this time it has two exposures overlaid to create one photo taken by reader EM.

Look up: Moon and Jupiter to “blaze spectacularly close together” tonight
