Balsamic Moon conjunct Jupiter, Venus, Aldebaran, the Pleiades

Here is an image produced with Stellarium of the eastern sky in the early hours of the morning (5 am) of July 16, 2012, when the little sickle of the last Moon will join Jupiter and Venus, against the backdrop of the constellations of Taurus, the stars cluster of the Pleiades, known as the ‘Seven Sisters’, and close to brilliant Orion. Aldebaran, alpha star of Taurus, appears still also close to Jupiter and Venus, as it has been for the past two weeks.

The Asteroid Ceres (Demeter) is also in the midst, conjunct Jupiter today, but she is not visible in this map.
