On the 1st of December 2008, occurred a rare celestial alignment of Jupiter and Venus with the waxing crescent moon together creating a smiley in the sky.

Viewers in Western Australia have the best view, with the moon appearing closer to the "eyes" formed by the planets.

While the planets and moon appear to be close together, in reality they're not. The moon is 250,000 miles away, while Venus is 93 million miles away and Jupiter 540 million miles away. North Americans on the other side of the equator viewed the phenomenon rather differently — as a sad face with downcast mouth.

Its funny, the time that India is in complete turmoil we have a smile, perhaps because its the mass awakening of the people!

God smiles to see his lil creatures in a city like mumbai scream "We are all one" at the gateway of India!!!!

Hari Om, Peace and Love,
