Smile, Sydney, smile!

Anyone else in Sydney get smiled upon last night?

No luck finding it at 9pm, which was supposedly the optimum time to witness the phenomenon. However, from a car approaching Penrith about half an hour later, and on a rather overcast and blustery Sydney night, we saw it very briefly when some clouds rolled back - but the face's right eye was winking!

Across Australia, the planets Venus and Jupiter were in formation with a three-day old crescent moon, appearing as a smiley face in the night sky. It will be another five years before the formation appears again. The phenomenon pictured here was taken by Yahoo! 7 user, Caroline, from Victoria.
