Frame Sz: 7½in x 9½in. Two days from Honey Lake, I passed through Monument Valley, witnessing the close Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn from there, and also farther on, from the Valley of the Gods, where I camped for the night. From the left a waxing, fat crescent Moon, cast a wan presence across the land, diminishing the stars, but still the two planets shone brightly.
