Venus, Moon and Spica, September 7, 2013

Venus and the crescent Moon on the 7th of September. Spica and Mercury are hidden behind clouds. Canon IXUS 400 ASA, 1 minute exposure. 6:30 pm ACST. Click to embiggen.Close up of Venus, Spica and the crescent Moon (3x Zoom). You will need to embiggen the iage to see Spica clearly.

Venus, Spica and the crescent Moon put on a nice display this afternoon. Pity about the clouds, but there were enough glimpses of the trio to be worth it. Mercury remained hidden by the cloud. This is a taste r for tomorrow night when the Moon and Venus are closer.
