A Planetary Conjunction for the Ages, May 2002

All five naked-eye planets shine in the western sky during evening twilight. On this image you can see a small triangle - Venus, brightest star, left is Saturn and up is Mars ( Jupiter is outside the frame to the upper left). On May 5th when I take this image the triangle appears nearly equilateral.

To Venus’s lower right, near the horizon, is Mercury.

Photographed with Pentax SP 1000 ,50mm/f:2 lens, 30 second guided on Fujicolor 800.
