Venus-Moon Conjunction – March 1, 2011
Last March 1, the 12% illuminated Moon was about 2 degrees close to the bright planet Venus in the eastern sky during predawn hours.
Due to thick clouds over our place at the time of this celestial conjunction, I did not have the chance to catch a glimpse of it.
Fortunately, one of my orgmates in U.P. AstroSoc — Anthony Urbano of Eteny Works — was able to observe and take a picture of these two objects amongst partly cloudy skies.
I really like this image because of its nice purplish color.
Thank you, Kuya Ets for letting me repost your photo. 😀
Clear skies to all!
