The (rather over exposed) partially eclipsed Moon with Saturn a little to the west and Jupiter above the building to the right of the image, along with Antares and the other stars of the northern part of Scorpius.

This was taken shortly after local midnight when the street lights are switched off and the sky becomes much darker, although there was a lot of high cloud present causing some problems with glare.
