Caption

Amateur astronomy, composite image. Silhouetted amateur astronomer using a pair of binoculars to view the night sky. He is looking at a conjunction of the planets, an event when two or more planets approach each other in the night sky. Several planets (bright objects) are close to the horizon, forming a line from lower right to another planet at upper left. This line is the plane of the ecliptic, within which the planets orbit the Sun. Venus is the brightest planet, and is often seen near the horizon at dawn or dusk.
