Venus, Mars, and the 4% Crescent Moon: A Dance
On Friday February 20, 2015 the stunning 4% Crescent Moon joined in a fabulous celestial dance with Venus and Mars just above the Western horizon in one of the more breathtaking conjunctions of the year. I snapped this shot during astronomical twilight at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA.
