January 2012 Jupiter & Moon Appulse (Closer!)
Same event but taken close to when Jupiter and the Moon were at their apparent closest (around 10:00 PM US CT). This image was taken though an 80mm ED Refractor - very cool to have both of these objects in the same FOV!!!
You can see the apparent size of Jupiter compared to the Moon here quite clearly!
