Moon and Venus

Thin cloud which threatened to spoil the view of the Moon and Venus did at least provide a colourful sunset.

Earlier in the day the Moon occulted Venus but a few hours later they are already a couple of degrees apart.

For once the cat stayed still long enough to get a picture, instead of the usual trick of bumping the camera tripod !

A slightly hazy view of the Moon and Venus, some faint earthshine is visible.
