Moon and Venus - the second and third brightest objects in the sky have always evoked interest among people. When they come close together it gets all the more interesting. Just like the eclipses which are rare events thanks to the orbital properties, Moon and Venus appearing together - at least at a convenient time for us to observe - are somewhat rare. Though not as wonderful or celebrated, they nevertheless attract attention. That's what happened today morning. The two celestial bodies were separated by less than a degree and it was indeed a great sight. Managed to take a few pictures of the event. The pictures were taken from Lalbagh.

The pictures of course, don't do any justice to the real thing as it happens quite often.
