Moon Venus and Spica Conjunction – 8th September 2013

Shot these on Sunday near Nicosia, Cyprus.

In the first and second pictures you can see the planet Venus above and to the left of the crescent Moon.

In the second picture you can also see Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo, just to the right of the Moon.

The third picture is a prime focus shot through an 8″ SCT telescope of the Moon and Spica conjunction.
