Here's a shot of the Belt of Venus that I took from the parking lot of a grocery store on Wednesday evening.

Here's a photo that I took on Thursday evening of the waxing gibbous Moon and the Belt of Venus.

Due to my long work schedule coupled with an easterly in route in the evening and westerly out commute in the morning right now I get to see both every day......Pretty cool.

The sky was clear for most of the day and I had high hopes for getting a great shot of the Belt of Venus and the Earth's shadow over Harrisburg on Tuesday evening. However, the sky was a bit cloudy to the east as sunset neared.
