Mars-Venus-Moon-Clouds Conjunction

Posted: 12 July 2021

Sunday, 11 July 2021, was clear during the daytime, but very hazy. As typical for this time of year, clouds began forming as sunset approached. I was able to photograph the conjunction of the planets Mars and Venus (about 1 degree apart) and the crescent Moon (5 degrees from Venus) through the clouds in the western sky, D850 DSLR (f/5.6, 2 seconds, ISO 3200, FL 220mm).
