Conjunction of the Moon, Venus & Jupiter

Posted in Architecture, Nightscapes, Personal, Sunset

In a relatively rare event, Venus and Jupiter were both very visible and close to each other in the evening sky, with the Moon passing between them. Cambridge was blessed with clear skies throughout this period, so I was able to photograph the progress of the Moon relative to the two planets, across three nights.

Venus is above Jupiter in these photos, which were taken at Castle Mound, Murray Edwards College, and Senate House.
