Crescent Moon and Venus Tonight

I noticed this outside, but have no tripod at the moment. A bright star is next to the moon, and it's Venus!

Quote:
At dusk tonight (Friday, February 27), step outside and look west. Venus and the crescent Moon are having a beautiful close encounter in the sunset sky. If you point a small telescope at the pair, you will see that Venus, like the Moon, is a crescent. The phases of the two are almost the same, adding an extra dimension of beauty to an already lovely show. Don't miss it!
Can someone with a tripod and SLR photograph this tonight?

Nice job with the conjunction.

I'm no photographer but the experience, of seeing the new moon & Venus tonight was awesome. I had to call my daughter in Santa Barbara to see if she could see it & she knew why I was calling before I said anything.

Any others?

Please remove this picture. We are coming to confiscate the file and all your equipment. Oh - and you never saw anything.
