we viewed a spectacular gathering of the thin very young moon
complete with Earthshine forming a 5 degree long line in the
west with the Pleiades star cluster just underneath, and the
planet mercury just under that.
This image is a
longer 30 second exposure that captures the last deep cobalt
blue of the evening twilight with the scene suspended in the
sea of blue. I took this near our house at a large open field
next to a golf course with Juniper pine trees framing the event.
