Full Moon with Jupiter with Galilean Moons and Aldebaran. It was an amazing formation to view tonight, 29 November 2012 in the skies. A full moon with an L-shaped alignment very close by of the planet Jupiter and the fabled star of Taurus, Aldebaran. This is the smallest full moon of 2012, by the way!What made my night, was my new lens on the Nikon D7000 HD video camera 1080p with a Sigma 50/500 wide angle at that, picking up the moons of Jupiter! View in HD Jupiter's four Galilean Moons! That was awesome and the icing on the sky-viewing, astronomical evening!http://earthsky.org/tonight/smallest-full-moon-of-year-and-penumbral-eclipse-november-28Later tonight, this lovely star-gazers dream of a trio, will be in perfect alignment..."Jupiter, the Full Moon and the first magnitude star Aldebaran will form a straight line with a span of only 5" More (full):http://cosmoquest.org/forum/showthread.php/139477-Jupiter-Full-Moon-Aldebaran-Short-Straight-Line-Nov-28Jupiter and it's Galilean Moons:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JupiterAldebaran:"Aldebaran is classified as a type K5III star. It is an orange giant star that has moved off the main sequence line of the Hertzsprung--Russell diagram."and"Aldebaran[needs IPA] ( Tau, Tauri, Alpha Tauri) is a red giant star located about 65 light years away in the zodiac constellation of Taurus. With an average apparent magnitude of 0.87 it is the brightest star in the constellation and is one of the brightest stars in the nighttime sky. The name Aldebaran is Arabic ( al-dabarn) and translates literally as "the follower", presumably because this bright star appears to follow the Pleiades, or "Seven Sisters" star cluster in the night sky."SOURCE:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AldebaranFull Moon with Jupiter with Galilean Moons and Aldebaran
