Venus Enters Wanning Crescent
I snapped this shot of Venus just passed third quarter phase on Friday, February 3, 2017. We had a nice layer of heavy haze that dimmed down Venus to the point where a photo was easily captured. Venus put on a fabulous show this winter hanging in the Eastern sky after sunset. I snapped this at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA.
Camera: Canon 60D
