Sky show

Yesterday at dusk the view toward the sky really was spectacular when we noticed crescent Moon, Venus and Jupiter appeared near one another in the sky. If the sky isn’t cloudy today and tomorrow we will be able to enjoy this beautiful sky show again.
I am only so sorry that I don’t have more quality camera to take more beautiful photos.
On this photo you can notice the dark side of the Moon due to reflection of the Sun from the clouds on Earth.

Wow! Not bad at all!
I'm very often amazed by your capabilities with your small camera.
Soon or later you could ask to your Husband and to your Sons to make a big present to their Wife and Mother:a digital reflex...
(Will they kill me for this comment?)

It remonds me the song "fly me too the the moon". A nice series

Fantastic capture. I saw it last week when they were farther apart.
We had dense fog last night so we couldn't see a thing.

Meda,
These are WONDERFUL! I did not get to witness this event myself, so I'm really enjoying seeing it through other's photos.
