Image Details:

Lots of talk about Venus and Jupiter, but don't sleep on Moon, Mars, and Mercury in the morning sky. This is the 6.5% waning crescent moon with Mars to the right. Down in the crown of the tree (about dead center of the image) you can barely see Mercury. Photo taken at nautical twilight.
