The crescent Moon joined Jupiter in the evening sky on Sunday soon after sunset. The inset image shows a close-up of the pair; in the image below, the moons of Jupiter can also be seen. To the top-left of the duo is the lovely constellation of Orion, its three Belt Stars pointing straight down to the horizon. All images were taken by Kos Coronaios.
