Is that a crescent moon 🌙?

No that is no moon but planet Venus in crescent phase. Planet Venus is nearing inferior conjunction and is currently in crescent phase with 7% illumination. It luckily got clear today just before sunset giving me a small window of opportunity to capture this amazing phenomenon. This was captured at Venus being 5 degrees from horizon.
