Note from two sources, below, the Moon and Venus now aligned as expected with one another. Note that consistently the Moon is lit from beneath, like a Nike zwoop, where Venus is lit from the side. Since they are both lit by the Sun, presumably, what is the second light source creating this difference?
- I'm sending some more taken this morning at around 04:50 July 13 and again on July 14. You can see a quarter moon higher up and Venus just below. Looking at Venus through binoculars it is quite impressive! It has never been so huge. There is a smaller star on the right which the cam doesn't show but it can be seen by the naked eye also.
- Here are some new pics from this morning just after 6:00 AM EST. They´re not as great as the first pics because I got them just a little too late. They turn out best around 5:00 AM, but I really wanted to catch that crescent moon today.
