Two days after, the Moon has joined the planetary duo. I take profit of the presence of the two planets to try to spot them in broad-daylight. With binoculars, I can see the Moon, then Venus, but Jupiter is still invisible. In the viewfinder, it's hard to see the Moon: I make many try and hope one frame will gather the three objects.
By contrasting strongly the best photo, the Moon (bottom) and Venus (on the left) are easily visible, but Jupiter (on the right) remains hard to spot. That's why I encircled the three objects.
