Yesterday morning the Moon was out there harassing the sun, causing a partial solar eclipse for many on the US East Coast and into Great Britain, with a few lucky folk way, way up north getting to see a short annular eclipse. Google it, there are some great photos.
Having finished with messing around with the Sun, tonight the very thin crescent moon was threatening Venus.
I caught it a couple of minutes later than I should have. It was pretty low, but there was a little bit of gap between those trees that I could just peek through from the driveway.
Any earlier and it would have been too bright to see the moon – I know, because I went and looked!
It was beautiful and clear. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a couple of nights like that to take pictures over the weekend?
