Quadruple Conjunction - A conjunction refers to the appearance of several celestial objects near each other in one area of the sky. On the morning of July 14, 2012, the Moon, Venus, Jupiter, and the star Aldebaran appeared in a quadruple conjunction in the eastern sky. Also joining these four was the bright open star cluster, the Pleiades. All five of these objects are visible in this photo taken from Saida, Lebanon.
