moon and venus...

This was taken yesterday after sunset. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see Venus up high in the branches to the left of the moon. The moon will be heading in that direction for a conjunction tonight. Not sure if I'll be able to see Mercury and Jupiter down low on the horizon unless I find a flat field somewhere, but it's pretty darn cold today ;0)

Here's some expanded info on these transits from Aquarius Papers.

And if the first photo is too hard to see, here's a bit more zoomed in shot.
