We were just getting home from dinner and shopping when I saw a beautiful sight in the darkening western sky: the young crescent Moon with diamond-like planet Venus floating in the velvet darkness above. I quickly grabbed my camera bag and tripod and headed back out for high ground to capture the scene before it disappeared. Technically, it was a 2.58-day waxing crescent Moon, about nine percent illuminated. Aesthetically, it was a lovely end to the day.
