Jupiter and Venus - Conjunction of July 2015
Jupiter and Venus - Conjunction of July 2015

Jupiter and Venus in a very close conjunction — accompanied, for scale, by the moon of the same night. You can see that the two planets appeared closer in the sky than the diameter of the full moon.

The four Galilean moons of Jupiter are visible: Ganymede to the left of Jupiter, and then Europa, Io, and Callisto on the right.

Venus, at the bottom, is in its waning crescent phase, 33.8% illuminated.
