The Night Sky

Tonight after sunset there was a very bright waxing crescent moon out in the western sky.  The moon had a thick bright crescent and right next to it was the dazzling planet Venus.

Venus is the brightest object in the sky after the sun and moon. It is only one day away from its greatest elongation – its greatest distance from the sun on our sky’s dome.

Amazing view!  I managed to take a few photographs through the trees in my back garden .
