Moon Venus Jupiter October 7, 2015 Gloucester ©Kim Smith 2015Tomorrow morning (as it was this morning) look east about an hour before dawn. Venus is dazzling next to the crescent moon and a little below Venus is Jupiter. Our astronomy friends will have to confirm, but I think you can see Mars, too. Go have a look for your self because these photos don’t adequately show how beautiful!

Pretty sure this is Beannie Nicastro’s Wharf (Felicia Oil) Back in 1937 and The Same Scene That I Captured in 2012

Gloucester Coal building is in the background, now the lumber shed for The Building center which you can see in the 2012 picture just to the left behind the F/V Mary and Josephine. It also looks like the building at the end of the right pier has the same pitched roof as the one in the 2012 photo.
