It’s a cold, chilly night, with cloud cover breaking every so often.  Our thin crescent Moon was able to penetrate most everything Mother Nature threw at it tonight.  But distance Venus, despite its still-glaring brightness, struggled to keep up.

And then I almost forget about their other solar system neighbor hanging around – Mars.  Faint but still distinct, it could only punch through those fast-moving clouds in the best of moments.  Mars is not pictured here, but was about halfway between the Moon and Venus.
