DescriptionIn the dawn of March 5, 2008 (06:40 a.m.), before the concealment of Venus for the Moon, in the roof of my house in Aguascalientes, I took the photo of the conjunction of Mercury, Moon and Venus. A big visual spectacle! Marvelous!
Mercury with weak light is lightly above and to the left of a diminishing Moon. Below to the left of the Moon, Venus shines with intensity.
