A pretty nice conjunction between Venus, Mars and the Moon happened in the first days of 2017. Being under the polar night, I was able to see the trio starting at around 14:15, but the sky was way too bright for photography. Menacing clouds were coming from the North and West and I waited as much as I could, until the clouds came in dangerously close to the conjunction. The sky was still pretty bright, but with a gradual neutral density filter the photos turned out decent.
