Venus and the Moon, a nice pairing!
On Thursday April 19th their was a pretty pairing of Venus and the Moon in the evening sky. I shot a few images with the Nikon Coolpix 4500 mounted on a tripod. On the first image you see the crescent Moon hanging to Venus's lower right, right over our neighbours house. On the second image you can see the earthshine on the part of the moon that is not illuminated by the Sun. On the third image you can see a close up of Venus and the Moon.
