The closest planetary conjunction of the year has graced our skies this morning, and astrophotographers were out in force to marvel at it's beauty. The pair were just 11.9’ apart, less than half the diameter of a Full Moon. Also joining the view was M44, the Beehive Cluster. This gorgeous shot is from Queensland, Australia by one of our longtime favourite astrophotographers, Joseph Brimacombe.
