The Moon and Mercury, from the past week.
I didn't get to do much star gazing when I was in Queensland. The series of intense lightning storms that rolled in most of the nights we were there put a stop to that. Mind you, sitting watching great arcs of lightning slash across the sky was pretty entertaining. The occasional "Oh wow that's FANTASTIC" was heard to escape my lips.
Still I was able to see the crescent Moon and Mercury above the twilight hills. Not too shabby I say.
