Beauty and the King

Jupiter (left) and Venus, May 6, Gorham, NH

The iPhone 6 camera has its limits. In this case, though, that limit appears to be … the sky.

(Sorry.)

Anyway, the little white dot on the left is the planet Jupiter, 400 million or so miles away. Ten times closer is Venus, on the right. Nine hundred degrees, with an atmospheric pressure of 1200 pounds per square inch.

Thirty million times closer is my house, lower right. Pleasant temperatures, non-lethal pressure, oxygen atmosphere. Also, banana muffins.
