Moon Venus Conjunction

MOON VENUS CONJUNCTION Saturday's lucky catch was a crescent Moon and Venus conjunction - a beautiful sight early in the evening before both celestial objects set in the West. Cell phone camera settings were ISO 80, f2.2 at 1/4th second exposure.

Photos were captured with an iPhone 6+ camera on Saturday July 18th 2015. The bottom view is zoomed and processed using iMac's iPhoto. The time was 9:57 pm CDT. An hour later the objects were no longer visible. Sunset was around 9:17 CDT.
