Jupiter and Venus Over the Caspian Sea

The two brightest planets of our solar system put on an impressive conjunction during a brief period in late January and early February, 2008 lying less than a degree apart. TWAN member Babak Tafreshi's wonderful photo of this impressive conjunction over the shores of the Caspian Sea was featured on NASA's AstroPhoto of the Day (click here).

Many congratulations for this impressive capture!
