Image Details:

Waning crescent moon illuminated by 31 percent, forming a conjunction with the planets Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The capture was made at 4 in the morning from Guatemala City. Jupiter is the brightest object in the sky before sunrise with an apparent magnitude of -2.6, which with some instruments like binoculars or telescopes you can easily see its natural satellites or moons. The conjunction could be seen with the naked eye.
