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.
