VENUS AND MARS CONJUNCTION Taken by Marion Haligowski on October 5, 2017 @ Lancaster, PA, USA

Despite mostly cloudy skies, I was able to catch a few glimpses of the Venus and Mars conjunction on October 5, 2017. This morning, the pair was an incredible 0.25 degrees apart. A small diffraction rainbow is seen as Venus enters the passing cloud cover. The photograph was taken with a Canon 70D and a Canon 200 mm f/2.8L II lens. (f/4.0, ISO 800, 5 sec)
