Crescent Moon and Venus over Sydney

5:31 pm, 6 June; photo from my kitchen

We had another stunning winter sunset in Sydney today, the near-cloudless sky darkening from clearest blue to a band of glowing orange along the western horizon, below a darkening blue above. Today had the added bonus of not only the planet Venus, but also a crescent moon.

And if you’re wondering — those small black smudges in the photos are not marks on my lens, or flies. They’re flying foxes (out of focus!) which at sunset stream east in their thousands. I often wonder where they’re going, because east very soon becomes vast ocean!
