Shots from our archives show Venus, Jupiter and the Moon in alignment as if smiling on Chiang Mai. Our photographs were taken on 1st December 2008 and show Venus, Jupiter and the Moon above the Three Kings Monument in Chiang Mai. It was a perfect evening and the sight of these three Celestial bodies smiling down on the three Earthly Kings was an awe inspiring moment. We were extremely fortunate to find ourselves in the right place at the right time, albeit with only a Compact camera. Waiting for the perfect framing with Venus, Jupiter and The Moon directly above the Three Kings was agonizing with the fear that clouds might move in to obscure the shot. We have no idea how frequently this alignment of the Planets and the Moon occur, perhaps someone can tell us, but it was a brief moment in time that we will never forget.
