Venus/Crescent Moon Occultation

We've been under the clouds for awhile, so I missed the latest celestial display.

5:30 PM on another cold, wet, overcast evening

Not so for others. Here are just two photos from Earthsky of the Venus/crescent moon occultation today. The first shows the moon moving toward Venus, and the second shows Venus just before it disappears behind the moon. Sorry I missed it.

Lyle Evans in Highland, California caught Venus and the moon minutes before the occultation.  Thanks, Lyle!
