This special conjunction of the planets Venus and Mars with the crescent moon was seen last weekend around the world. Looking west over Quebec City, photographer Jay Ouellet took this photo from LĂ©vis-Lauzon at about 7:00 p.m. on Friday, February 20. The dark side of the waxing crescent moon was illuminated with Earthshine.
