Planetary Conjunction at Peggys Cove

The Moon, Mercury and Venus from Peggys Cove. I chose Peggys Cove to photograph the two day old crescent Moon, Mercury and Venus all together. Venus is at the lower right in the photo and Mercury approximately half way between Venus and the Moon. Many people use the word conjunction, I believe to draw attention but I do not like to see it used indiscriminently, and there seems to be no concensus on how many degrees apart planets should be to be called a conjunction so the term is a bit meaningless. I would be inclined to call a conjunction less than 10 degrees apart.
