Caption: Venus, Jupiter and Mercury in conjunction at sunset. Venus is at upper left, Jupiter is below and to the right of Venus, and Mercury (less bright) is at lower right. Conjunctions occur because 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. Photographed on 25th February, 1999, near Fire Island lighthouse, New York, USA.
