    We did see it with the naked eye, but also watched it via YouTube from the University of Texas McDonald Observatory. They did an hour or more long special using their telescope(s) and astronomers to do a really great show and tell. I suspect the YouTube video is available to see.

    First shot taken with cannon 190 point and shoot zoomed out in night mode
    2nd and 3rd shots wife took with IPHONE but had to go with less resolution to get thin to load and still got rotation and when you expand canít see both planets but they were both visible to naked eye
    The sky was crystal clear
