The planets never really "aligned" to make a gigantic star like everyone anticipated but it was still beautiful to witness. The clouds broke for about 12 minutes, and I was having a really hard time trying to figure out the right settings for each planet's brightness, so they’re both just blown-out. Although, I did manage to capture a few of Jupiter's moons in the process ♥
