A brief time lapse video from the last couple of nights during the planetary conjunction of Venus and Jupiter with the moon. I shot these images below an abandoned ski lift in the hills of Northeast Nebraska. All images were taken using a Canon Rebel T1i with a Sigma 8-16mm at f/4.5 at 1600 iso. I had to brighten the sequences some while processing the video so that you could see the foreground a little better, which led to blowing out the moon in these scenes.

@XenoMatryX0Ionize1 Fairly confident that it is a lens flare from the moon.

@milehighmadman1 This was shot on the nights of Feb 25th and 26th, the moon was also a crescent here, but I had to brighten the video somewhat to get the foreground to show in the video. Thus increasing the brightness blew out the moon some.

@stephenramsden I want a motion rig so bad! 
What is that blue light going opposite of the stars?

@milehighmadman1 It was crescent shaped regardless of where you are on the planet....its the same Moon. I'm in Cairns, Queensland Australia. It was a spectacular show.....until the Monsoon rolled in....
what is the blue colored "dot" i see at the last time laps ?

@XenoMatryX0Ionize1 probably the ISS or one of a myriad of other satellites. Spaceweather dot c o m offers a really cool, free service that contacts you via sms when a sat is directly overhead your position. you can see several around 30 sec.The sky is crawling with satellites now compared to only even 15-20 years ago......oh the BLUE DOT....now I see what you're talking about. Lens flare...that's why it disappears when clouds pass in front of the Moon/main light source. 
When did you shoot the film? because here in Colorado the moon was crescent shaped during same conjunction.
