The crescent moon and the planet Venus looked stunning in the night sky as they rose above the cliffs of Freshwater Bay during the early hours Tuesday morning [December 4, 2018]. It was definitely worth the 3 a.m. alarm call!

The waning crescent moon took several mornings to sweep past Venus last week, and many in the EarthSky community caught photos! See more photos here.

EarthSky lunar calendars are cool! They make great gifts. Order now. Going fast!
