Venus, Juipter and Moon over Chongqing

By: Jef. Dai


Chongqing, China

2012 March 22


From the photographer: "I was born in ChongQing, one of the five biggest cities in China. Chongqing is famous for its beautiful nights all over the world. But in this city the light pollution is a major problem. With lots of neon lamps, I've never seen a starry night since I was a child. March 24, 2012 was a special day, Because Venus, Jupiter and the young crescent Moon were aligned. I went to the highest point of Chongqing to see this celestial beauty, but as you can see in the picture, It's hard to see even Jupiter (brighter than any star in the night sky, at Magnitude ~ -2)."
