New Moon In July

The new moon and the planet Venus put on quite a show last night. This image, looking almost due west, shows the crescent moon slightly above the horizon while Venus shines with an intensity that is almost brilliant.

I thought this was a pretty good shot, especially with a point-and-shoot camera like my trusty Sony Cybershot. Then I looked at and saw an image almost exactly like mine, also taken in Michigan.

It's a small world, indeed, especially when all of us on this tiny planet with all of our tiny cameras are looking up at the same moon and stars.
