Moon, Jupiter and Spica

Moon, Jupiter and Spica from the 11th April 2017. Four moons of Jupiter are visible in the image also.

Jupiter has been moving through the night sky over the last few months as it becomes more of a evening object. It has been gliding past the bright star Spica and on the night of 11th April formed a nice triangle with the bright (99.7% illuminated) Full Moon. Above is a photograph from the night and below a photograph of the equipment taking some of the images.
