Crescent Moon and Venus, Too

Glanced up in the sky yesterday and saw the crescent Moon.
It looked like it was smiling or laughing.
(It must have seen the weather forecast that calls
for rising temperatures. This time of year the 30s are a heat wave.)
I figured that the tiny bright spot
toward the bottom of the picture was a planet.
I did a little searching and figured out it is Venus.

this is an interesting shot. There is a person who lives in Sedona, Arizona who brings his gigantic telescopes to a hotel we stay at in Sedona. We look at the stars through his telesccopes and it is truly remarkable. Another world, literally.
