Another great shot of Venus

(Click to enlarge image). This beautiful image of Venus and the crescent Moon was sent to me by Bill Jones, and was taken on May 24th around 6 am from Surfside beach near Freeport, Texas. It's particularly lovely how the pair float above the waves. Thanks for sharing this great shot Bill.

There are some great opportunities for seeing the Moon and planets line up in the next few weeks, so limber your cameras up folks. Tommorow night (Wednesday May 31) the crescent Moon is next to Mars and Saturn is just above them. On June 28, Mercury, Mars the crescent Moon and Saturn are all strung out in a line reasonably close together. And that's not all. I'll post about some amazing close encounters over the next few days.
