During its last month of spring, 2012 saw a wonderful meeting in the sky, between Jupter and Venus, the brigthest and easiest to see planets of our Solar System.

The picture above was obtained by Gianluca Masi on March 13, 2012. At that moment, the two planets were approacing their minimum angular distance, while shining over the Saints Peter and Paul Basilica in the Eur area of Rome, Italy.
