I Used Fujifilm FinePix 2950 Camera in Automatic Mode with tripod. Mode digital medium angular photo 28° at 1X, automatic exposure (f/5.6 at 1/125sec or 1/60sec). I used automatic release for 2 sec. Original photo side: 3.0 mpx.
I send three photos so that it is possible to see the approach of Venus and the Moon in the days earlier mentioned. They were taken in the dusk - night towards the west. The Moon presents the smile of the cat Chester. In the first photo the Moon and Venus have an angular separation of 22 °
