Night Sky, The Moon, Jupiter, and Venus

For the past few nights, the waxing crescent Moon, Jupiter, and Venus have lit the night sky. Fully aligning on Friday night and slowly moving apart into a triangular alignment over the weekend. Here in Seattle, it is difficult to capture such phenomena. We are blessed with what seems like a constant cloud cover this time (or any other) time of the year.

And yet tonight, my 2 year daughter and I step outside for a dusk walk and she says, “Look Mommy, the moon,”! The best ones were taken right at dusk, and few more later in the evening. My first attempt at nighttime photography was a little difficult to capture (and focus). But also some of the funnest and most inspiring photos I have taken!
