Moon, Venus, Jupiter

As we were driving home Saturday night we noticed the bright stars in the sky close to the moon. I remembered reading about the Moon, Venus and Jupiter all being close together and it making for a great looking night sky. When I got home I looked it up to make sure. Last night and tonight were going to be the best nights for viewing. Last night was cloudy, so tonight was my only chance to try to get a picture. Thankfully it was a clear sky. Here is my photo of the night sky. The next time they will be this close is in 2052.

Here are a few other Daily Photo sites with their view of the same sight from different parts of the world. I will add any other sites that I find on the CPD portal.
