Not as much luck tonight as last night
, did see Venus and the crescent Moon together, but intermittent cloud meant I couldn't get that nice part of the twilight when there is interesting detail about. Also missed daylight Venus due to persistent cloud (well did see it through cloud 5 minutes before sunset, but that doesn't really count).
Here's some more nice Earth-shine and the Moon reflecting of the sea. Venus had gone behind cloud in the time it took to get the camera set up. Click to embiggen.
