Venus in 2021

Venus appears at lower right in this image taken by Malcolm Neal on the evening of the 7th December 2021. Jupiter is visible at upper left, while Saturn lies roughly half way between Jupiter and Venus. The 3 day old crescent Moon completes this celestial quartet. An annotated version of the image is included below. Malcolm took the picture on his hand-held Sony A7 III camera with a 24 - 105 zoom at 24mm. He tweaked the image brightness slightly upwards.
