London: The sky was graced with a spectacular trio recently, as Venus, Mars and the Moon gathered near the western horizon, however according to ancient mythology the eerie phenomenon could have a darker and more sinister purpose.

The spectacular lightshow saw a sparkling and brilliant white Venus snuggle up to the Red Planet beside a crescent Moon , the Daily Express reported.

A similar Venus- Mars alignment in May 2011 coincided with a spate of severe thunderstorms, floods and tornadoes in America.

Astronomers were hailing the event as one of the most dazzling space formations of the year with the luminescent orbs visible to the naked eye.
