A conjunction of the interplanetary Moons!

Planet Jupiter and four of its largest moons also known as Galilean moons were in a close conjunction with our Moon which is our only natural satellite. It was cloudy but there were gaps between the clouds enabling me to capture this beautiful sight. The colors you see are of Iridiscence (an optical phenomenon) created by moonlight on the passing by clouds which added to the beauty of this interplanetary conjunction of the satellites.
