Venus, Jupiter and the Moon – Skywatch Friday #23

Venus, Jupiter and the Moon Begin to Converge photo by Larry Jordan

This was taken a couple of weeks ago, on November 29th, just two days before these three celestial bodies converged.  You can read an interesting article on this phenomenon at the National Geographic website.

I liked the pastel shades of the sunset mixed with the moon, the planets and the city lights of Redding.  Enjoy the other Skywatch Friday photos.

Very cool image! The night sky can be challenging to capture perfectly, I think you’ve nailed it.
