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.

Here's a close-up of the anti-twilight arch.

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.
