Caption: Jupiter and Venus. View of a conjunction between Jupiter (top) and Venus (brighter, below Jupiter) at sunset. Mercury is also seen near the horizon as a pink/orange point of light. Conjunctions occur as the planets orbit the Sun in roughly the same plane, and at different speeds, so they occasionally appear to be close to each other in the sky. This was the conjunction of 22nd February 1999. Photographed from California, USA.
