Morning triangle of Moon, Venus and Mars

View showing the Moon, Venus and Mars, a planetary convergence that formed a triangle in the North Eastern, morning Melbourne sky on the 21 May 2009. In another hour the sun would rise and the pale red dot of Mars would fade from view.

This photograph was a long exposure taken over one second. The camera braced against a pole at about 6:00 am in the morning. It is the best of several images that I took.

You can view some of my other astrophotographs here.
