Three frames left to right stitched together with PTGui software and edited in PS.

Image Details:

A 10% illuminated moon rises before twilight along with Mars (left of moon) and Venus (far left). Venus is above the Patagonia Mountains in southern Arizona, and the moon is above the Sierra San Antonio in northern Mexico. Mars lost its reddish color here due to the length of camera exposure, and to the light pollution and atmospheric haze over Nogales Arizona and Nogales Sonora.
