The New Moon with Venus, Spica and Saturn

I captured the close conjunction of the new moon of Tishrei with Venus last night, adding as a bonus the bright star Spica with Saturn entering the picture at the upper left towards the end.

Spica, the brightest star in Virgo appears just to the lower right of the moon with Venus above left. Towards the end of the animation Saturn enters the field at the top left.
New moon of September 8, 2013 with Venus to the upper left and Saturn to the far upper left. Around 8:00 PM above the hills of Mitzpe Ramon, Israel.
