The Moon and Venus Setting

This time of year just after the sun sets you can see a beautiful sight to the West. The Moon and Venus are extremely bright and vivid as they set. They set fast, so you’ll have to go outside and view them just as the sun is setting to make sure you don’t miss them. Watch them closely and they’ll begin to appear brighter and brighter as the sky darkens.

I was lucky to get some decent shots with my cell phone camera yesterday evening.

The Moon and Venus.
