Birthday Astronomy Pics

As promised yesterday, here are the pics I snagged just before sunrise of the Moon passing in front of Venus. I had no idea this was supposed to happen that morning. I just let Mesa outside to do his morning business and noticed Venus as close to the crescent Moon as I have ever seen. As I was setting up the tripod the 2 kept getting closer and closer. Finally Venus just disappeared. By the time I told Kitty what was happening the rising Sun blotted out the entire scene. I was happy to have caught this astronomical phenomenon.

The 1st pic was just a normal exposure. I stopped it waaay down for the next 2.
