    Venus Jupiter Conjunction with Crescent Moon

    Last week, I was greeted with a beautiful clear view (my picture, not so much) of a conjunction of Venus and Jupiter flanking a crescent moon.

    I was lucky enough to see that going out my front drive to get the morning paper. It was really cool to see.

    Yes, the night I saw it they were in perfect alignment. (wasn't sure which planets they were so thanks for the clarification) Very cool.

    PS: We saw Maralyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. this past Friday at the Imperial Palace in Biloxi so I just had to post this.

    Nope - verified it with my "Planets" app on my phone. Actually, Saturn is also lined up with Venus and Jupiter, but I couldn't see it. It should be to the left and below Venus on the same right ascension, all in just three dimensions, not five.
