The Moon, Venus and Jupiter

Today (26-Feb-2012) The Moon was between Venus and Jupiter. The distance between them is still large enough so we will not call this setup a conjunction but rather an alignment. Nonetheless, it was very nice to see all three celestial bodies close together (They will look much closer next month!)
The first photo still in twilight, Venus at the bottom and Jupiter at the top.

 The second is just a closeup of the crescent moon

And the third photo will show all three bodies again with some earthly background
