Moon and Venus for September

The sunset Tuesday evening, here on Bonaire, was one of the best I've seen in a long time. The skies were spectacular as I was driving past the airport on my way South. Hopefully others will post some pictures of the sunset at its peak.
By the time I arrived at Red Slave, the colors were only a dim glimmer of what they had once been. But it was now dark enough that Venus and the Moon were visible, which was the image that I had been hoping for.

Skinny Moon Tonight

The New Moon was yesterday afternoon, so we made sure to be out looking for a skinny crescent moon this evening.
Fortunately the skies have been very clear the last couple days, so we were able to watch as it drifted down to the horizon.
