Conjunction celestial (4/4)

In the early evening on Monday (1 / 12), you can see the conjunction of the planets Venus and Jupiter with the moon (the three brightest -stars-astros- of the night sky).
Although the three stars are apparently coming in the sky, this is just a visual effect, they are aligned with the Earth. Jupiter, the largest planet in the Solar System, is much farther from Earth than Venus, and therefore seems less.
