Conjunctions Galore!

Do you ever just go out and enjoy the sky? During the last few nights of March there was a lot to enjoy after sunset. Each night the Moon moved up from planet to planet. First it was a thin crescent near Mercury, then - this night ,March 25th, a thicker one near Mars and the Pleiades - and on pass Venus, Saturn and Jupiter. What wondrous sights. No need for more words.

Technical Details:

Mars & the Moon on the evening of March 25. One was deliberately overexposed (4 secs) to bring out

the nearby Pleiades star cluster.
