Hey - look up at the sky!

Just caught a view of the crescent moon with 2 planets above, Venus and Jupiter. Since I don't have a super duper camera, I can't do it justice.
However, this great astronomy blog - Astroblog - gives a very fine description.
Oh, since writing this post a large cloud is now obscuring the view. Hopefully it will clear again soon. Check out the sky if you can.

From Comet Al's here is a good picture.

Well I rushed out there just ten minutes after you had written this post and got a brief glimpse. Wonderful! And I don't have a big fancy superduper camera either. Never mind there will be another time. Great post!!!

Was a very short viewing time as it was cloudy for the rest of the evening. Glad you were able to spot it in time.
