Venus, Jupiter, and the Moon are visible across Wales during the night

Jupiter and Venus as seen in Llanelli

Thursday night's night sky in Wales featured an alignment of Venus, Jupiter, and the Moon.

A spectacular celestial event known as a conjunction allowed viewers to see the night sky's brightest planets.

At the beginning of March, the two planets will appear to form a single point as they approach their apparent closest point, according to the UK Space Agency.

Look at some of the best photos taken as people in Wales watched the sky.
