Triple Conjunction over Silver Lake

Photo by Matt Hartmann

The moon, Jupiter and Venus put on a celestial show last night as they lined up in a grouping known as a Triple ConjunctionMatt Hartman of Silver Lake took the above photo of the  Triple Conjunction  – Jupiter at the top, a faint crescent moon at the center and Venus at the bottom – at about 8 p.m. looking west to Sunset Junction.  He also created a time-lapse video of images showing how the celestial trio moved across the sky in unison during a three-hour period.  The Triple Conjunction will be visible again tonight weather permitting.


  1. Nice photo! Love all the colors at the bottom!

  2. I. saw T.S. Eliot on The Avenue this Evening while out walking ” Sophie ” my AKA Black Labrador Retriever; As he paused for a moment to check his Pocket Watch and share a few kind words. ” it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, ” He Quoted. ” for good, or for evil ” I. Replied. Yea, for good, or for evil, He echoed; for good, or for evil ~
