Venus, Jupiter and Crescent Moon

Click on the Images for a Large View
I always enjoy seeing the lovely crescent moon in the evening sky, especially when it joins with some bright planets.  Seeing the different positions Venus and Jupiter are from the last time I photographed them shows you why the ancient Greek astronomers called them "asteres planetai", meaning wandering stars. for they do seem to wander about the sky.  The two images were taken with the same zoom lens on a tripod.
