Venus and Mars next to Moon

A truly romantic view towards the Moon on Feb. 20th, 2015. The Goddess of beauty meets the war God. The hot inner planet Venus, best known for its hostile environment apparently floats next to cold outer planet Mars, the next step of the human civilization towards the stars.

It might be worth to know, that our Earth with all of us on it was floating somewhere in space between both planets few months ago! Wow!
