The moon was
new on November 4, 2021, and then the young moon – a waxing crescent – began moving up past the cluster of bright planets in the evening sky. There was a glorious moon and Venus Sunday and Monday evenings, November 7 and 8. Then the moon moved past the planets Saturn and Jupiter in the evening sky. The planets in the evening sky are spectacular now and about to be more so! Submit your photos to EarthSky here, for display on our community photo page. Thanks to all who contribute!

View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Steve Price in Draper, Utah, caught this Venus and the moon photo on November 7, 2021, and wrote: “Venus and Luna visiting together in our night skies. There were only 8 keeper images. I had a very short window between clouds … so the shots were taken through electric wires across the street from my home. Some shots were shorter exposures and some longer. I like how this one turned out with the most earthshine of the 8 pics.” Thank you, Steve!
