Moon, Jupiter and Venus – A rare celestial event of 2008

These are the pictures of a rare celestial event of 2008 in which Moon, Jupiter and Venus created a triangle, as seen from earth, in the evening sky for a few days. This happened on 1st Dec 2008. However, as time passes the moon separated itself further every day. This event will not be seen again until sometime in the 2050’s. I took these photos at Ruparel College grounds, Matunga, Mumbai from my 40x zoom Sony handycam.
