I was able to view a Waning Crescent Moon (~23 degrees above the eastern horizon), a brilliant Venus (-4.32m,~31* above the eastern horizon) and Mars (1.35m, ~27* above the eastern horizon) over a lavender to bluish-gray clouded horizon. The trio was impressive over the hazy sky.

A digital image produced in Gimp.

Frank,

Thank you for the compliment on my observation. It was treat to see this as my weather has been rainy and cloudy for some time. Your DSO observations are excellent. I look forward to your future observations.

Carlos

Carlos,

As always, another beautiful rendering. The quality of the lighting through the haze really makes the image come alive. I look forward to your next....

Beautiful, Carlos. I'm glad the clouds here didn't make me miss seeing it after all. :)

Thank you all for your very kind compliments on my Moon, Venus, and Mars grouping observation. I was fortunate to have been able to view it all considering my rainy weather. I hope to make more observations in the near future. The best of luck in your own observations.
