The Moon and Venus, Feb. 27, 2009

Friday night, John & I were riding home from somewhere and we saw the crescent moon right next to the planet Venus. It was quite amazing! I wanted to take a photo of it and promptly forgot until I checked my e-mail. A friend asked me if I had gotten a shot of it... John was ready for a little nap, so he did not mind me going off to be weird for a second. Sadly, an important piece of my tripod is missing, so I'm in tripod never-never land (this means that you do not have one to use and you are not ready to go buy a new one); anyway, I took my monopod, hopped in the van, and went out looking for a field to shoot the moon.

We saw that too on Friday night. I was wondering what star/planet that was.
