Planetary grouping

In the west after sunset, there has been a nice grouping of solar system objects over the last few nights. Last night (Dec. 1st) should have been the best with the moon, Jupiter and Venus all fairly close together. In Europe, they had a bonus Lunar Occulation of Venus. See some photos on Spaceweather.com since it's been cloudy here in Seattle, and we missed the good stuff as usual. Grrrr...
Probably the coolest photo I've seen of this is above the tail of Endeavour last night from NASA. Zoom in on the photo too see them clearer.
