Moon and Venus

Last night I took a picture of the Moon with Venus just above the horizon. The picture has lots of noise and is in no way a good capture of the Moon. But considering the fact that it was taken with point and shoot camera, I think it’s wonderful that i was able to capture Venus in this image.

      Yes I was lucky, generally the city lights and pollution block out such astronomical events. I guess that was not enough to block out the ever bright Venus :). Wish I had a better camera.
