New Years Planets

A little cloudy here this morning, but just enough breaks to get Venus, the crescent Moon and Mercury.

Venus is at the top, the Moon beneath it and Mercury is in the lower left. Tomorrow morning the Moon will be slightly beneath Mercury. Mercury is nice and bright and easy to find...well, easy to find for Mercury!
