The Moon, Venus and Jupiter put on a show...

Tonight at around 9.30 the Moon and Venus were quite close above the western horizon, while over to the south east Jupiter was the brightest object in the night sky. Its four largest moons (Io, Ganymede, Callisto and Europa) were strung out in a line, while two cloud belts were just visible.
