Just went for a ciggarette outside, and there is a star next to the moon, closer than I have ever seen before. I'm in NSW/Australia, Just saw it
then, haven't seen any news links to it yet.
In all my years on earth i've never seen a star so close to the moon.. Could be jupiter though?
Just thought I'd throw this out considering all of the talk about asteroids and meteors at the moment.
If you in Aust, plz go outside and look and tell me if you see it. I tried to photograph it but all I get is blur (camera is small point and shoot).
The moon is approx half full, and the star is almost on the edge of where the moon's outline would be if it were full. If someone has a telescope plz
have a look and let us know.
