With Venus heading closer to the Sun and the Moon further, these two lovely crescents will shortly switch places, not to meet again like this for many months. For now, with clouds gathering on the horizon and rain and snow forecast, I was very happy to be able to enjoy such a lovely sight before it's too late.
