Venus and Jupiter sparkle in the sky over Neasden Temple

Stunning photograph captured by Times snapper Jonathan Goldberg

Venus and Jupiter sparkled in the night sky last night above one of Brent’s landmark buildings – Neasden Temple. This stunning photo was taken by Times photographer, Jonathan Goldberg, who was cycling home when he spotted the two planets.

Always carrying his trusty camera, Mr Goldberg took this shot which also captured the magnificent outline of the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, also known as Neasden Temple which is Brentfield Road.

Mr Goldberg, who lives in Willesden Green, said: “I was pleasantly surprised to see the planets Jupiter and Venus just as I was cycling past the Neasden Temple last night.

“After cloud cover the previous night, I’d forgotten to look for them, after hearing on the news that the two planets were dancing alongside each other in a rare conjunction.
