Greetings:

You might have read in the news about the close conjunction of Venus and the moon today (March 26, 2012), and that it would make brilliant Venus easy to find in the daytime sky. Fortunately for me, the Erie, PA, sky is crystal clear today, so I grabbed the camera and tripod to get a picture of it.

The moon subtends an angle of anout 0.5 degrees, so that makes the separation from Venus about 4.4 degrees. That's pretty close for a conjunction.
