The Moon, Venus, and Jupiter

The Moon, Venus, and Jupiter Rising over Simi Valley

After the Sun, the three brightest objects in the night sky are the Moon, Venus, and Jupiter. This morning, all three were grouped fairly close together and were visible before sunrise.

On Friday morning, Venus and Jupiter were at conjunction–less than 1 degree apart. This morning, the Moon joined the grouping in a very nice sight.

I’m a little disappointed with the focus of the photo, but you can see the crescent waning Moon rising over the Simi Hills, with Venus just above, and Jupiter above Venus.
