Tuesday morning look toward the southeast sky for a thin 26.8 day old waning crescent Moon about 7 degrees to the right (west) from the bright Venus. Both objects will fit within the field of view of most binoculars.
Both Venus and our Moon show a similar phase appearance for the same reason – the relative angle between the Earth, Sun, Moon, and Venus. The banner graphic is an exaggerated view of Venus and our Moon but I did this to show their similar appearance.
