The Moon and Jupiter

Couple of pics of the moon and Jupiter,
 taken from my garden, totally awesome, 
I love the fact that we can see Jupiter with the naked eye,
So if you haven't been out and had a look, I suggest you do so, 
It's quite something :)

Jupiter takes about 12 years to go around the Sun, 
while the Earth only takes one. 

The list below gives some the best times during January
 to observe the Great Red Spot which should then 
lie close to the central meridian of the planet.
