Saw the planets Jupiter and Venus in the night sky over Kuala Lumpur

Last night was a relatively clear night over Kuala Lumpur. Since it is the month of June, a number of planets in our solar system is visible via the naked eye. Two such planets that I got to witness is Jupiter and Venue.

In the photo below you can make out the two spots in the sky. The dimmer dot just above the brighter spot is the planet Jupiter. The brighter spot is the planet Venus. The direction of observation is due West.

Here is a magnification of the same sky location where you can see the bright venus and the dim Jupiter.
