Amazing captures of the moon and Venus

Bright Venus in the twilight with an exceedingly thin and fragile waning moon below it.

A darkened city at dawn, with the very thin crescent moon and tiny dot Venus above.
View larger. | Gilbert Vancell Nature Photography – an EarthSky friend on Facebook – captured this image on June 1, 2019. He caught it over the fortified city of Mdina on the island of Malta. He wrote: “Oh this was tight! I overslept my alarm after a night at the festival … I was expecting Venus to be closer, so the super zoom turned out to be too tight for this, and 35mm too wide, so I had to work with what I had and stitched 4 images at 150mm to cover the area I wanted.” Thanks, Gilbert!

View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Another beautiful shot of the moon and Venus before sunrise May 31, 2019, by Stephanie Longo. See Venus on the left, just above the darkened foothill? Stephanie caught them as viewed from Eleven Mile Reservoir, Lake George, Colorado, USA. Also notice that the lit side of the moon points right at Venus. Thank you, Stephanie!
