A few days back, that is Sept 8th, the Moon and the Venus planet came pretty close together in the evening sky. i took their close proximity photograph from our balcony. I edited it later with the help of Elements 11 and then Pic monkey. Added those galactic view through their software. It was a bright evening sky, and I am sure the the galaxy was there but my camera was not strong enough to capture that. And there is where artistic independence come, right?
About this night's phenomenon from Space.com
A planetary meet-up will create a potentially dazzling celestial display this evening (Sept. 8), a cosmic show involving the two brightest objects in the nighttime sky: Venus and the moon.
The planet Venus, which has been languishing low in the dusk all summer, at last manages to stay above the west-southwest horizon as late as the end of evening twilight. About 45 minutes after sunset on Sunday (Sept. 8), look toward the west-southwest horizon to see Venus hovering rather close to a waxing crescent moon � an eye-catching tableau in spite of the pair's low altitude in the night sky.
Weather permitting, Venus will likely catch your eye first; it will be shining less than 10 degrees above the horizon � less than the width of your clenched fist held at arm�s length. Make sure that you have a clear and unobstructed view toward the west-southwest, with no trees or buildings in the way. Now look off to the lower left of Venus and you'll also see the slender sliver of a waxing crescent moon. This eye-catching duo will quickly descend as the sky darkens, finally setting about 1.5 hours after sunset beyond the west-southwest horizon.
