As this first month of 2017 comes to a close, we find the beautiful Young Moon (Luna) appearing in the evening western sky shortly after sunset on January 30th just below the bright planet Venus and small, dim Mars just above it.
The next evening on January 31st, at just about the same time of evening looking into the southwestern sky, Luna has traveled to meet the other two inner planetary travelers in an evening triangle.
I was fortunate to have good clear skies for both days when I took the shots. Both photographs were taken within a mile of each other at about the same time of evening.
I hope y'all enjoy them as always.
