|From top to bottom: Jupiter, the moon, and Venus|
Our village is having its annual fiesta, which is nice.
Last night there was a house music disco. I'm not a fan of house, but hey, my parents didn't care for Status Quo. I can live with this one night a year.
The music from the house disco fought with the music from a thrash metal concert in the next village. That was annoying. Even after I shut the windows, the sound in my bedroom was about as loud as I usually play a radio. That was worse.
It went on until 5 am. That was seriously annoying.
I had planned to get up at 6:30 to photograph the conjunction of the moon, Jupiter and Venus. When I was still awake at 4:30, I decided to get up and see whether the moon had risen yet.
It had, but it looked fuzzy, as though there was thin cloud or dust in the way. So I went up to the viewpoint at Llano de La Venta up at 1,300 m to try for a photo.
But I hadn't had much sleep, had I? I left the camera bag behind, and didn't realise until I got to the viewpoint, half an hour later. So I had the compact camera, but no DSLR, no torch, and no do-hicky to fasten a camera to the tripod. And no sleep.
All things considered, I think it came out quite well.
