Nice image. It really is great fun following Venus at this point in its orbit. From our latitude Venus is almost directly above the Sun at sunset now so the horns of the crescent are pointing upwards. Your image is also a great demonstration of atmospheric dispersion with blue light being refracted upwards more than red. I’m hoping we’ll get some more clear opportunities over the next few days.
