Moon/Venus/Mars Conjunction

Clouds. Clouds, clouds, clouds, clouds, clouds, clouds. It's been cloudy lately. A lot. And when it isn't cloudy the humidity is so high you can practically drink the air.

I thought I was going to miss the Moon/Venus/Mars conjunction on February 20, 2015, but the clouds parted just long enough for me to take a few shots. This one is my favorite.

Moon, Venus, and Mars. Venus it the brighter star to the left of the Moon. Mars is the star above and to the right of Venus.
Did I mention that it has been cloudy?
