Venus and Cresent Moon in the Daylight

Venus (bright dot to the upper right of the image) above the Moon on September 11, 2010. This image taken with my Canon IXUS 100 IS on 3x zoom, auto exposure. Taken approximately 3:00 pm.

One of my obsessions joys is observing, and helping other people observe, Venus in the daylight. This Saturday I was able to show some of our and EldestOnes friends Venus. It was actually easier to pick out Venus than the faint crescent, and I occasionally had to use Venus to guide me to the Moon. It sort of made up for not being able to see the Massing properly.
