    This will still be visible over the next few nights as Venus gets closer to the Earth, and brighter!

    Im really digging the silhouette of the building as well as the moon and the star. The fact that you can JUST see the rest of the moon is awesome, nice shots!

    Wow, I agree, I dig the scenery as the silhouette. Great shot.

    I saw the same thing last night, but couldn't muster the motivation to get the camera out.

    Is that Venus then?

    Nice to see you Chris as well, wondered where you'd got to.

    I was so incredibly mad that we had clouds during the Venus-Moon conjunction! I have to wait until the end of February 2009 before they'll be within 2° again. Grrr.

    Well done, Chris! I too love how you can see the 'outline' of the whole moon, and agree that the silhouetted building really adds to the shot.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Hi Tony! Yeah I'm still around although not as much as I'd like, Busy with babies & hospitals! :( Yes that is Venus! Look for the brightest "star" you can see in the west!

    Stu, it could be worse! Our conjunction was during daylight! :grumpy:

    Corinna, thanks for the link to your shots! :thumbup:

    Hi Anty! :hugs:

    Glad everyone likes the sillo, shilloe, silhoe, black roof & chimney! :lol:
