Didja see it?

I must admit that I'm not generally out and about after dark. And when I am, I'm usually not paying attention to the sky and its happenings. Therefore, I was very glad when my friend Heidi called and asked me to get a pic of the cool moon and whatever was next to it. (We later found out on the news it was Venus.) She loved it because it looks like a face winking at us. Apparently Venus was a crescent as well, but you couldn't tell that since it's a little ways away. :)

Thanks for the heads-up, Heidi. I hope the rest of you saw it on your own. If not, enjoy ...

I was amazed that it shone as bright as the moon (through the clouds) even when I couldn't see any other stars!
