Young October Moon setting below Antares in Scorpius.
Here is a breathtaking evening security and street light illuminated view taken from my veranda looking towards Mutare, Hospital Hill, Chikanga and Christmas Pass with the two day old crescent Moon low in the sky below the bright star Antares in the constellation Scorpius. A bonus is a beautiful purple flowering Jacarada tree in the middle foreground. This is a thirty second nighttime exposure which could not have turned out better than this!
