Moon and Venus tonight - from Spaceweather.com

"SUPER" CRESCENT MOON AND VENUS: When the sun goes down tonight (May 17th), step outside and look west. A beautifully slender crescent Moon is passing by Venus in the twilight sky Take a closer look at that Moon. Does the crescent seem extra big and bright? You might be right. It's a "supermoon."

     Got an image of the crescent moon, through a lot of cloud, but unfortunately Venus was hidden in the cloud. Oh well, better luck next time.
