Last night, just before sundown and then for several hours after, the planet Venus (visible for several months now) was supposed to be at it's brightest and close to a crescent moon. It was so neat to see! The moon was just a little sliver, and right above it, you could see Venus. There was not a cloud in the sky, so we had a perfect view of it!!

Obviously, the bright crescent is the moon. That bright spec just above and to the right is Venus!

Taking this photo was quite a Kodak Moment in itself! I wanted to get all the kids with Venus in the background, but the girls were too short. I had the bright idea of having Wayne hold all three while I took the photo. I didn't realize that the I had hit the zoom, and couldn't figure out why I couldn't get everyone in the photo! I was literally laying on the ground here, looking up at them to get this shot. Right after I took this photo, Wayne put the girls down and I said "wait, I had the zoom on! We need to take another one!!" Needless to say, he was not willing to accommodate me on this one! So, here is it....this was the best I could do!
