Supermoon crescent and Venus

A handheld DSLR shot of the supermoon crescent and Venus shortly after a clear sky sunset. Taken from a back bedroom window with me leaning against the frame trying desperately to keep a steady shot.

Many thanks, Mark, Alexandra, Pedro & Eric.

It's usually cloudy when something interesting occurs. Thankfully not this time. :)
