21st March 2015 was a special day for astronomers, sky-observers and enthusiasts alike. First it was the Vernal Equinox, second it was a solar eclipse and third was that Venus, Mars and our Moon could be seen placed very close to each other.
For me it was serendipity. Samarth pointed at the crescent moon and I ran to capture it with the Canon 70-300 mm. It was only after I saw the photos on the laptop did I realize that the red dot could be planet Mars. A simple Google search confirmed that indeed it was Mars. Also I came to know that the bright spot above Moon was Venus. To make things more serendipitous my camera also captured the trail of a shooting star!
