Venus and the Crescent Moon, Wednesday 18 April.

Venus and the crescent Moon on Wednesday 18 April, looking west at 18:21 ACST. Canon IXUS, 3xzoom, 1 sec exposure ASA 400. Click to embiggen.Image taken with my mobile phone almost immediately after, no idea of the conditions. Resolution is less than the canon shot. Click to embiggen.

After cloud and rain wiping out the Moon-Venus conjunction on the 17th, conditions tonight were good enough that I got the closer pairing of Venus and the Moon. The clouds made Venus a bit hard to see, but the twiligh glow made the whole scene rather spectacular.

Tomorrow will have the Moon further away from Venus but close to Aldebaran, which should look nice as well.
