with binoculars. The dark side of the moon is lit up so you can easily distinguish the seas.
The very bright star right next to the moon, is not a star, but Venus. Its so close, you can easily see its spherical shape, like a tiny crescent Moon.

I may be a nerd, because I've been hoping all week to go look at this conjunction tonight.
And I'm pissed because it's cloudy out!

Not a cloud in the sky here in Miami. I live in the middle of the city and even with all the light noise, its magnificent.
It made me think of 2001 A Space Odyssey and Thus Spoke Zarathustra immediately played in my head.
DAMN!!! I was outside walking earlier and noticed the moon and Venus and thought that I would run in and get the camera and see if I could get a good pic...totally forgot when I got home...It's all OK though, because now I have La Chouffe to comfort me.
we were watching it in Cocoa Beach too - amazing views right before dinner .....went inside, devoured lots of sushi and sake, came back outside and it was gone.
