While waiting for their close conjunction next 30 June, we managed to capture a nice image of planets Venus and Jupiter, hanging above an amazing skyline. In fact, there is Saint Peter Dome well visible on the bottom. This image was taken between Trinità dei Monti and Pincio, two very celebrated places of Rome. The image is self explanatory, as always when the beauty of nature is involved.
