Moon and Venus

The Moon and Venus were really close in the evening sky tonight. It was kind of cloudy and hazy but they still looked great. Venus is showing a crescent shape, just like the moon, but you might not be able to see that now that I've shrunk the picture for posting online.
Comet Lulin is right next to the star Regulus tonight. It is significantly dimmer than it was on Monday, but still pretty easy to spot in binoculars.
