Morning Glory

Jupiter, Venus and an Earthlit Moon gathered in the dawn sky.


Seronik-Moon-Jup-Venus Aug23

Skynews.ca editor Gary Seronik captured this view of the August 23 conjunction from his home in Victoria, British Columbia. Venus is the point of light closest to the horizon, while Jupiter lies near the top centre of the frame.

Less than a week after Jupiter and Venus had their close approach, the two brightest planets have drifted apart, as the above photo shows. On the morning of August 23, they were joined by an Earthlit crescent Moon, forming a lovely triangle in the dawn sky.

    Terrific photo, Gary! Great that you were able to get both this conjunction, and the one on the 18th.
