Date/Time of photo:

1/20/2007 7:07 PM

Equipment:

Canon Powershot A40, 210 MM, 400 ASA, f/4.8, 1s exposure

Description:

With both objects just fitting into the field of view of 15 x 70 binoculars, the close proximity to the horizon at the time, combined with the poor seeing caused Venus to vary from yellow to a bright reddish-orange; while the moon took on a "candled-egg" appearance. Dispite the blowing snow & below-zero wind-chills, such a beautiful sight made the experience worth enduring the weather!
