Alignment of Moon with Venus and Jupiter

I almost missed the grand show that Jupiter, Venus and the Moon were putting up in the sky.

The crescent moon forms a neat triangle with Venus to the south and Jupiter to the north. I do not have a very powerful camera and the planets almost look the same. It may still not be too late to catch the planets tomorrow- though the moon may have moved away.

Photograph taken at very high shutter speed- you can just about make out the moon and the two specks of light to the top and the bottom
