Venus and the Moon Observed
While denizens of the northern hemisphere got to see Venus and the Moon a fairly spectacular one degree apart, we had to make do with a much larger separation.
I got clouded out for most of the evening, but then the clouds parted and I snapped the pair just as they were about to set (hence the lack of any interesting forground or comparison stars). Good Earthshine though.
Spaceweather has a better shot, and a nice gallery of images, including one from Australia taken in daylight!
