Caption: Timelapse footage of the trails of the conjunction of the crescent Moon, Venus and Jupiter, on 26th March 2012. Venus is next to the Moon, with Jupiter the fainter planet visible lower down. The trails are produced on long-exposure images due to the rotation of the Earth, which causes the stars and planets to appear to move across the sky. Filmed from the UK.
