A BAA alert prompted me to look out for Venus and the Moon in same field. It turns out there is a bonus with Mars in the left upper part of the frame...

Some light cloud interrupted from time to time, or depending on your point of view, adds a little dramatic effect.

Strong Earthshine highlights some lunar features.
