Crescent Moon and Venus Rising at Dawn April 26, 2014

The 9% crescent moon rose alongside Venus this morning a little after 5:00am. The pair were about 8° apart, making it sort of a conjunction, not spectacular, but something interesting to look at on the weekend! Yes, waking up at 5am to take the dog out, seeing that the moon will rise in 5 minutes, and staying up to photograph it and then blog about it are my ideas of fun on the weekend.

It was a major pain in the butt shooting toward oncoming traffic, and toward so many lights from my apartment complex and the warehouse across the street. The warehouse just recently added even more lights to their parking lot that sits empty all night.
