Conjunction Between the Moon and Venus on 3-22-2015

Here's a pic I took while stuck in a traffic jam on I 65 south of Lafayette, IN. Not a great pic as I took it through glass with my Samsung Note 4, but the Moon and Venus are clearly visible. It was a beautiful and striking sight. Both were low in the west and I was hoping to get home and take an image before they set. The traffic jam slowed things down, but it was also a fortunate event--2 minutes after taking this pic, the western sky was completely overcast!  It's an ill wind.... :)
