The Moon, Venus and Jupiter

A rare conjunction of the Moon, Venus (at the bottom) and Jupiter (to the right) photographed on December 1st, 2008. The image was taken with a Canon 5D camera on a tripod. It is a 1 second exposure. This was the closest these objects appeared from Tucson, but other parts of the world saw these objects in closer proximity. Click on the image to get a larger view.
