Hello everyone! I know it has been ages since I published here, but I have had many things going on in my personal life, but now I'm back! I hope I've still got some of you with me.
Today, I wanted to share an awesome image from APOD (Astronomy Picture of the Day).
Believe it or not, the smaller crescent you see is Venus. The larger one is our own Moon. Because Venus is much further away it looks a lot smaller. Lucky for us, these two orbs are easily seen in the daylight - but, of course, while in crescent phase, you would need binoculars, (or a telescope).
