Moon and Venus next to constellation Capricornus in the evening twilight from Mount Uludag in Turkey. From the photographer: “After a winter storm I went up to Kirazli village, about half way up on the mountain road, with 30 cm of fresh snow at the elevation of 1100 m. If you look carefully at the horizon on the right, Mercury is there too.” Click the second photo for another Moon-Venus conjunction view from the mountain, this time on October 4th when Venus much closer to the horizon at dusk.
