Four Planet Sunset

Chris Kotsiopoulos recently shot 60 photos of the incredible triple planet conjunction on May 25th of this year. Venus, Jupiter, and and Mercury (as well as the star Elnath (Beta Tauri) on the far right) can be seen dropping across a beautiful sunset over the Alikes salt lake near Kos Island in Greece.  It’s a pretty amazing time-lapse.
