Venus (lowest), Jupiter (middle), and the crescent Moon forming a celestial triangle at dawn. Photographed from Uludag National Park near Bursa in Turkey, the high altitude view point, at elevation of 1734 m, provided good transparency to also record the M44 star cluster (known as the Beehive), next to Jupiter. Click on the constellation icon above the image to see a wider angle view of this conjunction where a part of Bursa citylight is also visible. Tunc Tezel
