This evening a pretty crescent Moon will be located close to a brilliant Venus. The Moon will be a slim 12% crescent a little over 5° from Venus shining at -4.3 magnitude.

Look for the two as the evening sky begins to darken, they will not be difficult to find. Tomorrow the Moon will have moved 7° to the east of Venus.
