Moon, Jupiter and Venus

Jupiter, Venus and MoonJupiter, Venus and Moon are currently in close conjunction in the evening sky. It is quite an amazing sight and can still be seen tomorrow, too. Over Thanksgiving, we also set up the telescope in front of the house to look at the moons of Jupiter which was quite fun. I tried to take a quick picture of the Moon, Jupiter and Venus, but got it over exposed. The extreme light pollution in Mountain View makes it difficult to take any pictures of the night sky.

The light pollution here is so bad that most stars are never visible. I assume there must be a good reason to waste so much electricity on lightening up the sky - I just don't know it.
