Venus and Jupiter

Moon, Jupiter, Venus, March 25, 2012. For one of the best gatherings in the western sky during 2012 I was lucky to have clear weather to take it in.

To the lower left of the thin crescent Moon is the planet Jupiter. High above the pair is the shimmering light of Venus. The glow of Earthshine is visible on the shadow side of the Moon.
