This was quite a spectacle last evening. The image doesn't do it justice somehow:

Lovely pic, Brian. It was an amazing sight on Saturday. Venus was so bright.

Looked good last night too, with the Moon between Jupiter and Venus.

Thanks Folks :)

To the eye both the Moon and Veus had the quality of light reflecting from a perfect diamond. Breathtaking really!
