Did You Catch the Triple Conjunction at the End of February?

Most people around the world in the Northern Hemisphere probably missed the triple conjunction of the moon, Mars and Venus at the end of February. We certainly did in Israel where the winter has been cloudy, windy, rainy, snowy and cold. We even had two snow days in February alone in Mitzpe Ramon! It's been weeks since I've been able to do a star tour.

For those who missed the sight here's a photo of the triple conjunction from Palm Springs, California, looking toward the San Jacinto mountains in the West.
