Moon, Star and Sunset!....16/04/2010
The waxing crescent moon looked a treat as the sky was darkening and the sunset was fading, also clearly visible was a star directly below the moon, I believe it to be Mercury but I am not 100% sure on that. Out came the camera and tripod, I do not find taking moon pics very easy and after numerous attempts I was fairly pleased with the results. The photo's of the star with the red centre and green outer colours is the star below the moon. The star with the green centre and red outer colours is a star that was to the left of the moon and probably thousands or more miles away from the moon, I believe it may be Venus. I am not hot on Astronomy as is quiet evident.lol!!
