crescent moons

Slender, showy.

We’ve had quite the show in the Western sky the past two nights. The slender, waxing crescent moon visible after sunset before it sets behind the buildings in the Loop. Venus has been amazing, too, but I don’t have a telescope so she’s a bit more difficult to capture.

Waxing crescent at ~6% illumination, 16 May, around 9:15 p.m.
Waxing crescent at ~2% illumination, 15 May, just after sunset.
