Moon-Planets conjunction 23rd February 2009

On the morning of the 23rd February 2009 skywatchers were treated to another unusual conjunction of the thin crescent Moon with Venus, Jupiter and, as a bonus, Mars. Not quite a "Smiley Face", but attractive nonetheless.

Here's some images with the Brighton Yacht Club Marina in the foreground.


Moon and planets grace the colourful morning sky over the Marina. The planets are identified here.

Glorious colours of the impending sunrise.
