crescent moon and venus tonight!

if you have clear skies today, look for the tiny crescent moon and try to spot venus nearby! its rare (and exciting, i think) to see another planet during the day.


the pair will be brilliant in the evening sky as well!

The moon and Venus were definitely amazingly bright tonight... I especially liked how you could see the shadowed part of the moon contrasting with the bright sliver... And Venus was brightly trailing along.
