Venus and Jupiter Conjunction was created by Neill
The two planets are at their closest on March 1 with an approximate gap of 38 arcminutes (just over the width of the full moon from the perspective of an observer). On Tuesday - Thursday nights this week (21 - 23 Feb), they are joined by the waxing crescent moon.

Venus is certainly visiting the neighbours lately.

Right now at 7pm on Wednesday 22nd February, I can see without any telescope or binoculars, the 2 days old Crescent Moon, Venus and Jupiter from a bedroom window. 
No way can I get my refractor on them as they are too low in the western sky. 

Best regards from Aubrey.

Beautiful image, Finbarr. 
Your earthshine looks magnificent!

Maybe we will get some clear skies during the next 7 days. 

Best regards from Aubrey.
