One more color photo from this close conjunction event.
Only 9 degrees above the horizon - but seeing was exceptionally good and allow me to catch Jupiter moons close to planet shield.

Worth attention is Io which is approaching Jupiter shield and Callisto just above it. Ganimedes is in a distance and Europa is on the planet shield (but seeing is too bad to catch it)

Detail on the Moon is also quite nice.

Photo made at 16:49. Around 45 minutes after maximum of conjunction.
Altitude only 9 degrees above horizon. Separation between Moon and Jupiter around 17 arc minutes
