Conjunction over Côte d’Azur

I took these images from Villefranche (located in Côte d’Azur, the Mediterranean coastline of the southeast corner of France) before dawn on July 7, 2012 and showing the beautiful  line-up of (from top to bottom) Pleiades, Jupiter, Venus (sitting in the V-shaped Hyades star cluster)  and Aldebaran  in the twilight colors over Cap-d’Ail.

In the foreground on the left is visible the Greek-style property “Villa Kerylos” whereas in the background on the left is the 550 mt high “Tête de Chien”promontory.
