On December the 1st 2008, Venus, Jupiter and the Crescent Moon came together and formed a unique shape in the sky – a smiley face!

This image was captured at Green Point, overlooking Brisbane Water, on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia.

Taken with a Canon 350D and Sigma 17-70mm lens.

This image was chosen as 1 of the top 10 great astrophotos of 2008 by Sky&Telescope magazine.

This image was featured on Astronomy Picture of the Day, 5th December 2008.

My name is Mike Salway and I’m an amateur astronomer and photographer.

I’m the co-founder of the Amateur Astronomy community site, IceInSpace, and my personal blog site and image gallery is at mikesalway.com.au

I love high resolution planetary imaging and deep-space imaging using a telescope, and I love capturing wide field vistas that involve a lovely foreground scene combined with astronomical interest in the sky.
