A Beautiful Conjunction

This image was taken this morning at 6:39am while the late rising moon remained in the growing twilight.

The waning crescent Moon stars in a series of conjunctions in this week's predawn sky as it passes Jupiter, then Venus, and finally Saturn.

The planet to the left of the moon is Venus, and to the right is Jupiter. The Sunlight reflected from Earth gently illuminated the right portion of the moon.

The Moon and Venus made a dazzling pair from the time they raised until about 7:00am

 

Thank you for your comments,
