On the night from Monday to Tuesday, Venus was above the Moon, as we see in the first image of this photographic report in Las Fotos de los Lectores de La Vanguardia.
On the contrary, this past night, Venus was under the Moon, the same conjunction but inverted as we see in the second photo.
Two stars are in conjunction when observed from a third party (generally the Earth) they are in the same celestial longitude, in this case, the Moon with Venus.
As the celestial latitude can be different, the stars come very close in the sky, although they do not coincide, passing one over the other.
The conjunction is one of the main aspects of the planets. It is also applicable to any celestial object that is located visually close to another.
It is not surprising that the conjunction between the Moon and Venus is the most colorful, since it occurs between the two brightest celestial bodies in the sky after the Sun.
In the third photograph we can appreciate the crescent Moon in detail.
Finally, in the fourth photo we see the Moon with its dark part. They are images captured in the Remei de Vic neighborhood, in the first image we see the neighborhood church.
