Moon & Venus Over Oakmont

    Newer Older

    The waning crescent Moon and the planet Venus are within two degrees of each other and brightly shine over Oakmont Baptist Church in Greenville NC on the morning of November 5, 2007. This pairing of the moon and planets is quite common during the course of a year as our Moon orbits the Earth in nearly the same plane as the other planets of our solar system. Astronomers refer to this pairing as a conjunction.
