It was too cloudy to take photos of the Jupiter/Venus conjunction but it was worth trying the effort to get this photo.

I was wondering what those two close "stars" were in the sky last night. Jupiter and Venus? Pretty cool.

Beautiful storm front.

LIghtning photography is great fun. I used to do a lot of it when I was in Florida.

I really should get those slides scanned.

Nice picture OP. it was too cloudy here to see much last night but I was able to faintly see the red moon.

I was watching those two planets through my spotting scope...pretty cool.
Who can explain what I saw as a "vapor tail" from Venus? Swamp gas, aliens, beer?

Venus has stages like the moon. Could a lack symmetry caused what you saw?
