3 day old moon


Just a quick one.
Last night was the best night for astronomy in weeks as my friend MJ will testify. The usual suspects were in all their glory, the Orion Nebula, The Pleiades and all. Going out about 7.15pm the moon was on it's final descent so I captured this snap of it's boat like shape.

I really wanted Saturn but unfortunately I wasn't around when it was at it's best angle for me (about 10.30) so here's hoping I get another chance soon.
