Thin crescent moon with Venus conjunction over frosty drew observatory

Hey folks,

Just a quick blog post showing you my recent celestial capture of the thin crescent moon with our sister planet "Venus" in the evening sky over the frosty drew observatory!  This spectacular conjunction of our "sister planet" a.k.a. "evening star" with the crescent moon was less then 2-degrees apart!  I added a nice foreground landscape showing the astronomical icon of our frosty drew observatory.  I light painted the observatory to make it pop and balance the light.  Planetary conjunctions make for very photogenic subjects and celestial captures and the addition of the thin crescent moon only adds to the celestial event.  The closer the two celestial subjects are to each other the more spectacular the event and capture.  Some of the most spectacular conjunctions are with Jupiter and Venus, although planets, are our two brightest stars in the sky!

Enjoy!
