Venus-Mars Conjunction, February 2015

Venus and Mars are less than 0.5 degree apart! The pair looked beautiful in the western sky after sunset on February 22nd 2015. Venus and Mars won't couple up that close until October 2017.



I took this shot using my Canon 60D with Tamron 70-300 VC USD mounted on a EQ5-Single Axis Motor.
