Featured above is the conjunction of the waxing crescent Moon and Saturn as observed from Kolkata, India  the night of January 14, 2024. During their closest approach, they were but 2 degrees apart -- the Moon was to the south of Saturn.  Note that the yellow splotches are mustard flowers, and the green splotches are leaves of the same mustard plant -- purposely out of focus.
