Get-together of the Moon, Venus and Jupiter, February 2012

Type of event: Conjunction
Celestial bodies in conjunction: Moon, Venus and Jupiter
Date: 25.-27.2.2012
Observing place: Levi, Kittilä, Finland

In late february 2012, the Moon, Venus and Jupiter approached to each other in the celestial sphere. Between 25th and 27th of April these celestial bodies were in a beautiful alignment in the sky!

Unfortunately the capabilities of my small pocket camera are quite limited, and I couldn’t take any fancy photos of this celestial get-together. Actually only the Moon and Venus are visible in the photo. Jupiter was a little bit too faint to visible in this photo. Nevertheless, here’s one shot of this occurrence!
