moon jupiter venus

 

This is what is referred to as a conjunction (sort-of.)  A conjunction is when two or more objects are at their closest proximity to one another druring a given period.  But actually, this image is a day after...I had cloud cover the night before this image, and was not able to capture them at their closest point.  This image consists of the Moon (top)  Jupiter (bottom left) and Venus (bottom right.)  Not one of my best images.  This was my first attempt at using a standard DSLR lens to capture an astro-event.
