Monday night marked the curtain call for the triangular trio of the crescent Moon, Jupiter and Venus in the night sky. The Moon snuggled up to within three degrees of Venus while Jupiter sat beneath the Moon-Venus pairing. The night before (Sunday), the Moon paired up with Jupiter as Venus looked down on them.
Check out several neat photos of these formations from CWG photographer Kevin Ambrose and several readers.
