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.
