Superb clear sky waited for the evening conjunction of crescent Moon and Venus so I decided to photograph from the city. I set up my tripod in a park facing the castle of my hometown. The celestial events happened above it. At first I catched the setting Mercury and later the Moon-Venus pair with Jupiter above them, then the trio with ISS crossing my sky. The conjunction was unbelievably beautiful!
