Moon and Planets

The Moon put in an appearance a little to the lower left of Mercury this evening. We were very fortunate to have cloud free skies tonight.By tomorrow evening, the moon will moved up to be a bit below Venus. That will look nice too.
The background stars in the picture are part of the constellation Virgo. Porrima is magnitude 2.9, Zaniah is mag 4.0 and Zavijava is mag 3.8.
