Moon and planet photos, from the EarthSky Community

The moon was new on November 4, 2021, and now the young moon – a waxing crescent – has returned to the evening sky. There was a glorious moon and Venus Sunday evening, November 7. Did you see them? In the coming days, the moon will be moving up past the planets Saturn and Jupiter in the evening sky. The planets in the evening sky are spectacular now and about to be more so!

There were only 8 keeper images. I had a very short window between clouds … so the shots were taken through electric wires across the street from my home. Some shots were shorter exposures and some longer. I like how this one turned out with the most earthshine of the 8 pics.” Thank you, Steve!
