Moon, Jupiter and Venus conjunction

My wife, Cynthia, called me on the way back home from work last night and told me that I had a present waiting for me when I came out of the subway. A gorgeous moon with two sparkling diamonds floating by her. I couldn't wait!

When I did come out, I had to walk out of the busy downtown Bethesda high rise area to see it and I was floored!

The photo above doesn't show how sparkling Venus and Jupiter were in the night sky. If you zoom in to Jupiter (the one on the left), you can see one of it's moons!
