Equipment:

Canon 300D and Sigma 70-300mm zoom lens set at 214mm.

Description:

The eastern-half of North America was treated to a nice conjunction of the Waxing Crescent Moon and Mercury on the evening of May 6. The weather turned out to be near-perfect in West Michigan that day so I was able to capture the scene above. The only thing that's missing is a gentle spring breeze and the sound of geese "honking" in the distance. Mercury can be found about 2 degrees below and slightly to the left of the 2% illuminated Moon.
