Moon & Venus

The crescent moon floats in the early morning sky while bright, bright Venus shines with an intensity that only early risers get to see. Yesterday morning, on February 26th, these two heavenly bodies were much closer together.

This morning's show is less dramatic but crystal clear and showy in the desert southwest sky. The temperature at 5:30 am was about 50, a far cry difference from the single digit chill that is lingering over much of the northern states this late in February.


  1. Love the picture and prose. I've been watching the same early morning event in mid-Michigan.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Howard. I missed seeing it! I really enjoy your photography from mid Michigan and am glad that we can share our work via Facebook and this blog.

    Looking forward to many more great photos,
