About this image

I have noticed how the 'Evening Star' is looking splendid recently and, then, yesterday the crescent Moon made an appearance nearby... It was a beautiful sight. I show here a moderate close up where I also took the opportunity of including an aircraft with its contrail as it passed between them.
