Venus and Jupiter Conjunction

I had the opportunity to witness the peak of the Venus and Jupiter conjunction on this Mar 15th. This is when these 2 planets appear to align and show up on the night sky as 2 very bright spots. According to reports around the world, this phenomenon is at its highest peak tonight.

I was very lucky to find the conjunction happening right at my doorstep, so I got the tripod and camera out to the corridor, pointed it towards the planets and took a shot. It was also nice to have the HDB flats opposite to act as foreground interest.
