Venus, Moon and Aldebaran, April 21 2015

Venus, the Moon and the Hyades on 21 April 2015. Orion is visible above them. Stack of 10x10 second exposures 400 ISO with my Canon IXUS. Click to embiggen to see both the Moon and Venus reflected in the sea..Venus, the Moon, Aldebaran (the brightest star) and the Hyades on 21 April 2015. Stack of 10x8 second exposures 400 ISO and 3 x Zoom with my Canon IXUS. Click to embiggen.

After days of terrible weather and inconvenient cloud, the sky was perfectly clear and I could see Venus and the crescent Moon clearly on the train on the way home. Got the camera set up at home and then watched the Moon and stars brighten as the twilight deepened and the Moon and Venus headed to the sea.

 Venus and the Moon (and Aldebaran if you click to embiggen) above the roof at around 6:00 pm.

Tomorrow  (22 April) the crescent Moon will be on the other side of Venus and Aldebaran. Lets hope its is clear as well. You should be able to see Venus in daylight by looking down from the Moon.
