Conjunction of Jupiter and Venus

We had a nice conjunction of Jupiter and Venus last night. Conjunctions are fun, but of no scientific value. Conjunctions occur when two planets line up so that they appear next to one another in the night sky. In reality, Jupiter and Venus are quite far apart in space.

I shot this photo of the two while they were about 40-degrees altitude in the western sky.
