2017, September 17: Venus and Moon


Brilliant morning star Venus shines in the eastern sky with the crescent moon this morning, The nearly 27 day-old moon is about 6.5 degrees to the upper right of Venus.

Notice the earthshine on the moon this morning.  Sunlight reflected from our planet gently illuminates the moon’s night.
