Thin Moon and Jupiter

Thin Moon and Jupiter

I was able to view a very thin Waxing Crescent Moon (2.8 days old, -7.96m, ~34.5 degrees above the western horizon) and Jupiter (-2.06m, ~23.5 degrees) over the western sunset sky on March 7, 2011 (23:15 U.T.). The sky was a brilliant orange-red color closest to the western horizon with lavender blue clouds above it. Jupiter was peeking through the clouds and the thin Crescent Moon was a ghostly figure in the pastel blue sky.

  1. Carlos, it seems we share the same sigh. Particularly I prefer the handmade sketches, although I really enjoyed yours. Congratulations.

    P.S. what’s the location?
