Conjunction of Moon and Jupiter Above Lake Hennepin Above the lake is the image of the Full Moon or Corn Moon as the Native Americans call it because corn is harvested right around this time of the year. And above the full moon is the Planet Jupiter the giant fifth planet from the sun. And from my perspective I spotted and captured it in this single frame shot with the use of Mavic Air II drone. Below, you can see the reflection the moon into our Lake Hennepin. The temperature drops down to 37 degrees F which makes the lake look like a mirror and with the low lying fogs crawling slowly and gently over the lake that makes the scene so fascinating. Lake Hennepin has a lot of vegetation around and it is just small lake but wildlife find refuge to this place like some Beavers and their big lodge in front of our house, the Loons nesting on the other side of the lake, and the Canadian Geese. After doing my research, I just know that it is a conjunction of Corn Moon and the largest planet of our solay system the Jupiter at exactly 6:04 AM the position of the Jupiter is right on top of the Corn Moon.
