This morning I caught a really good shot 40 minutes before sunrise of the thin waning crescent moon with distant Saturn and tiny Mercury low in the horizon, just as the predawn darkness was giving way to dawn's early light.
I took this shot looking east along SC Hwy 9 just outside of town.
Then later after sunset, Venus and Mars became visible in the western sky. I took these two shots, one just after sunset and the other over an hour later.
A week from today Luna will be making her appearance rising in the west to meet with Venus and Mars. Hopefully I will be able to get those shots, cloud cover and weather permitting.
