The planet Venus and the Moon were 'in conjunction' on 27 February. That means they were visually close together on that evening. There wasn't any eclipse, they simply appeared near each other. Now because the Moon moves across the sky much faster than Venus, the two are now separating and are tonight pretty far apart, but in the same general westerly location. Venus is by far the brightest 'star' in the sky. I'm not sure what the third star is that you mention, but it doesn't figure in recent events anyway.
