Jupiter, Venus and the Moon in alignment

It may look like a nice, starry night scene, but these celestial bodies are much closer than regular stars.

From left to right they are Jupiter, Venus and the Moon in almost perfect alignment. Of course they are not really in a straight line, but it appears that way to us.

So, not a starry night, more like a planety night.
