That Moon With Venus This Week

Crescent Moon and Venus

The simplicity of the graceful crescent and the tiny star dancing in the sky for all to see was a thrill just to behold. The new moon was November 4, this was November 7 and you can just see the edges of some of the craters.

You’d think I’d encounter this while I was out on one of my wilderness walks, and truly that would have been magnificent, but I was actually in the Aldi parking lot. I had pulled from my space, turned and headed for the exit, checking my rearview mirror, and hit the brakes when this was somehow perfectly framed in my side mirror. Good thing no one was around me. I turned around and found a good spot in the parking lot to get a photo, but I didn’t have my tripod for a long exposure to capture the portion of the moon that wasn’t lit by the sun, but was lit by a small amount of reflected light.
