Jupiter Rising over Lake Superior

In other nocturnal observations, a long-lost love, astronomy! (Forgive the bad feature photo, it was a time exposure with my iPhone.) I watched Jupiter rise over the lake tonight, and the lake was so calm that you could actually see its reflection. It was one of those beautiful, albeit faint, long light beams down the surface of the water. I’ve never seen the reflection of a planet in the lake before, and I wouldn’t have guessed it would have been bright enough. I think, though, it was just the right combination of conditions.
