The Planets were Aligned....

Coming home from dinner Saturday night we noticed an alignment of the planets. It was a beautiful, clear dark night. The planets shone brightly as they aligned with the moon. The stars were bright. BEAUTIFUL! So after arriving at home, I grabbed the camera. Then I grabbed the Ipad! The app; Starwalk is amazing. We love to hold it towards the sky and have everything labeled and confirmed with what we just witnessed. Below is what we viewed. Enjoy....
