A Thin Crescent Moon

There is something just magical about a thin crescent moon.  Even though I know about the motions of the moon and planets, I am usually surprised when I catch an unexpected glimpse of a new crescent moon.  This happened today when I was going upstairs at dusk and stopped to glance out the window on the landing.  What a joy to see this.  The thing on the roof is a metal chimney for a wood burning stove in the house next door.

I noticed that last night as well (although I was too lazy to grab my camera). It was cool how you could see the outline of the entire moon.

Is that Venus nearby? Very nice earthshine. And nice composition.-- Stan
