The Rime of the Anicient Mariner?

Last night as we stepped out onto the front deck and looked into the sky we were amazed to see the Moon, Jupiter and Venus all lined up in the clear sky. These planets will not be in this close configuration again until 2052. We don't go out after dark much. We thought this is what the sky always looks like. (of course you can find a better image almost everywhere but I kind of like this one taken with my little Canon.)

thanks for identifying the bodies (yes heavenly) involved. My son and I have watched them several nights in wonder.
