Waning Crescent Moon Was Near Mercury


   This morning on my way to work I paused to capture a few pictures of the waning crescent Moon near the planet Mercury. This is one of several pictures I took and its specs. are: 55 mm F9; ISO 100; 2 sec. With a 2-second shutter speed the headlights from west bound cars on Highway 50 become the streaks of light on the right side of the picture.
