These are some of the iPhone photographs that I took of the slender crescent Moon and Venus last from two different locations.  The first was from the parking lot of a nearby mall.

The second one was from a Burger King that's on the way to the Naylor Observatory.  I went to the observatory after getting some takeout but Venus was too low by then to be visible from that location.
