Jupiter peeking over the lake (Toronto)

Upon returning home after the Astronomy Day Ontario Science Centre evening star party and the brief gathering at the Granite pub, I pulled the car into the driveway, shut down, grabbed my wallet and palmtop, walked around the back of the house, turned right, and walked south toward the side door. And there, through the trees, over the highschool's tennis court structure, was a beacon in the sky, low, bright, not moving. Jupiter?!

Wow. A freebee. An extra planet. So I saw Venus, Saturn, and Jupiter this evening!
