Dear observers, yesterday I could observe a very nice conjunction of Venus and moon close to the horizon. I grabbed my sketching book, a few pencils and a clamp lamp and walked around for finding a nice foreground. I finished with the barn of the agriculture coop close to my house.

 

Because I want to sketch moon and Venus as close to the horizon, I started with sketching the clouds blow them and the barn. The barn has new metal doors which shimmered brightly. At last, I included all celestial bodies, moon Venus and some stars from Aries.

 

I sketched in inverse and reversed it after scanning.

Uwe,

 

A fine sketch of the waxing crescent Moon with Venus and the barn in the foreground.

 

Very nice post.

It was quite a stunning site from here, too, though a half day earlier.
