The Moon, Venus and Jupiter

The Moon, Venus and Jupiter
The Moon and Venus

The photos are taken just minutes before Venus’ occultation behind the moon in December 2008. But who knew? It was a bit cloudy, and I thought I did a good job, packed the camera and half an hour later it was on the news. You can see on the first photo Venus encroaching the Moon while mighty Jupiter is in the upper right side of the photo. Second photo, just Venus and the Moon.
