2020—Bosque and Jupiter?

The Track Ponds at Bosque del Apache are often the nighttime roost for hundreds of Sandhill Cranes and a few are visible in the lower right settling in as the sun sets. Since I’m still reminiscing about Bosque and missing it, I have been looking at some of my photographs from past years, this one taken last December. Besides the glorious colors of the sunset, what caught my attention was the large star in the upper right and if you look closely, you see a smaller star to the right. Since I’m not much of an astronomer, I’m not sure but I think this is Jupiter and Saturn. Since I haven’t been able to see this year’s great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn because of fog in my area, I’ll settle for last year’s sighting before they got so close together.
