Since last weekend, I keep an eye on the Moon, Mars and Jupiter. Last Sunday, the two planets almost “touched” each other, they were so close from our view on Earth. The view distance was less than half of the Moon diameter. This morning, the Moon was in a perfect position to capture a photo of all three celestial objects.
Luna, the Red Planet, and the Gas Giant danced together in today’s morning sky.
I always shrink my pictures to a medium size. Therefore you really can’t see Mars in this photo. For a better photo view, you might like to check out my link on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/132943299@N07/38735737935/in/album-72157686994312444/
This morning while I was waiting for the car to warm up, I looked up to see in which phase Luna is in the twilight sky. Jupiter and the waning crescent Moon were close together. I ran inside, got my camera and captured a photo, before I drove Sara to school.

Before I cleaned the windshield of the van, I looked up to see how close the Moon and Venus are in the sky this morning. Both looked beautiful, dancing in the eastern skies before sunrise.
