The Appulse of Delta Geminorum by Jupiter was observed on October 5th. I was taking images of NQ Geminorum at the time, which I normally do by pointing the camera between Delta Gem and Pollux. NQ Gem is about half way between the two stars. However this time I could not find Delta Gem, and I soon found out why. It was so close to Jupiter that I couldn’t resolve it with the naked eye, being no further away from Jupiter than its satelites.
