Moonlight starbright

As I was closing the curtains on Saturday night I saw this just peeping above the tree tops...

Apparently, it is Venus and the crescent Moon and they are shining through the twilight in beautiful conjunction, less than 10° apart (http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/266671-Go-out-and-look-at-the-moon-right-now!)

A crystal clear night sky - with a view forever.  I hope I never take that for granted.


  1. Hi Dani, I'm dilly about amateur astronomy and am inspired by your (and your son's) photos of the moon. One day soon I look forward to letting my telescope loose on the clear skies of Rietkuil. Regards, Rogan.

    1. Rogan - It will blow you away :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment - it makes my day.
