At dusk on Saturday, October 9, clear skies in Santa Barbara revealed the arresting conjunction of the four-day-old crescent Moon shining only 2.5 degrees away from brilliant Venus. Note the earthshine illuminating the remainder of the Moon. They are both situated in the constellation Scorpio so that's the red giant star Antares just above and to the right of Venus.

Nice shot.
Get out just after sunset on Thursday, Oct 14, and see the Moon forming the bottom vertex of a nice triangle with Jupiter to the upper left and Saturn to the upper right.
