Painting of 2008 December 1 conjunction was created by johnflannery

Hi all,

I don't know if anyone has ever seen Miruna Popescu's painting of the 2008 December 1 conjunction of the Moon, Venus and Jupiter? It's a beautiful piece by a very talented artist. Miruna is an astronomer on the staff of Armagh Observatory.

All the best,

john

Really reminds me of that superb evening, what lovely colour.
