Skywatch September 7th, 2023

The beauty of Milky Way only appears briefly as the moonlight starts to dominate the night sky. Next to the moon you can see Jupiter shining brightly throughout the night.

At the same time as my observatory was hard at work doing deep sky imaging, I enjoyed this calm clear night from my home by shooting Jupiter and the Moon with my 200/1200 Newtonian telescope. I was delighted with the sight of Io rising behind our Jovian neighbor! The sight gave me chills as I find it extraordinary to be able to see a moon-rise on another planet ~650 million kilometers away. You can also see the Jupiter rotating between the images.
