ECHO PARK — Self described astronomy geek Waleed Anbar took photos of Tuesday night’s conjunction of Jupiter and Venus . There were a lot of people out at the lake, and many seemed to be taking in the sight of  the two planets cozying up in the western sky.

“You’d be surprised (or not) how many people knew about the event – not just astronomy geeks like me,” said Anbar, who lives in Elysian Heights. “Practically everyone walking by was into it. all  Made me happy [to see] that what happens in space can still get people excited.”
