Conjunction 02/26/2012

Tonight's conjunction of the moon, Jupiter and Venus was spectacular.  In this pic, Jupiter is close to the moon, with Venus towards the bottom of the frame.  Note the earthshine on the moon, making the unilluminated part of the lunar disk visible. In country lore, this used to be called, "the old moon in the new moon's arms."
