Many people were gazing up Friday night as the moon, Mars, and Venus put on a beautiful cosmic display.

Over the past month, the two planets have been moving closer together — known as a planetary conjunction. Vancouver astronomer Derrick Kief said that the last time this happened was in 2008, reported News 1130.

But the planets were joined by a crescent moon, making for a stunning sight.

Mars and Venus will start moving apart again after Saturday night, said Global News.
