Jupiter, the moon and Venus align in the night sky over Buda Castle in this skywatcher's image. The three celestial objects formed what is called a conjunction in the sky. A conjunction occurs when two celestial bodies, Venus and Jupiter in this case, appear near each other.
Astrophotographer Tamas Ladanyi of the World at Night took this photo from Budapest, Hungary on March 26, 2012. The orbs look like an arrow in space, with the crescent moon closest to us, Venus on the top right and Jupiter below.
