On our way back home, Peter and I couldn't help but notice the two bright heavenly bodies beside the waxing moon. We know that Venus and Jupiter are the only objects which could be so bright and so close to the moon but I can't be bothered to find out which was which.

This shot was handheld, ISO6400, 120mm, 1/5 second and pushed a lot in Lightroom. Whilst a tripod would have led to a less noisy image, it wouldn't have overcome the huge difference between light and dark.

And these are indeed Venus and Jupiter.

Lucky you ! I saw this conjunction while I was driving home. Unfortunately, I did not have my camera with me.
When I eventually got home, it was too late, the moon was below the horizon :-(
So, great shot ! :)
