2013_08_09 Moon - Venus Renedezvous

We had a really nice view of the Moon-Venus Rendezvous last night as the two met low in the Western sky just over the Spring Mountains. They were both so bright, the city lights paled in comparison. We were a little late getting outside to see them and were only able to get off one shot of both of them in the sky before the Moon set out of view. HOWEVER, for us personally it was a terrible night for picture taking. It seemed like nothing we did was working right so what you see in today's post is the only marginally usable photo of the celestial meet. The cartoon below expresses our frustration quite nicely:
