I knew that 1/20/07 Venus is going to be close to 1 day old Moon. I went to a cliff above Pacific to see the Moon and Venus, and I was up for the surprise. I also saw the tail of the comet McNaught as well as Zodiacal light. Pleas notice the Moon Reflection in Pacific. I call the picture Triple Conjunction of the Moon, Venus and the comet tail.
