Waxing crescent with Earth Shine.

A thin new moon appeared before dark. Later Venus and Saturn showed up. The tripod stayed put, I ratcheted the new camera up to 5000 ISO and shot it handheld. It’s grainy, the detail leaves a little to be desired, just to be able to do it is something.

The moon, Bison Horn or Witchcraft Symbol. It’s all good.

A skiff of snow, too little too plow, but enough to shovel. Later, it turned into a glorious day. If this keeps up, I may have to ask for a few days off. Nice winter days are the best days of the year and hard to come by.

      New or old crescent moons are significant in many cultures. I will do some reading about Islam. I know it is a widely used symbol in Muslim countries.

    I’ve been looking at that moon the last couple of nights (unusual for us to see the sky at night – usually just clouds).

    I’ve lost any enthusiasm I might ever have had for winter (I never had much) and can’t wait for spring!

      If you could see the moon last night, it was paired with bright Jupiter. A very nice sight.

      I prefer Winter, the quiet and darkness. Summer here is overrun with noisy tourists and every year we have to go further out of our way to avoid them.
