Waning Crescent Moon, Venus and Comet 46P Wirtanen
This image was taken early in the morning while the late rising moon remained in the growing twilight.
The waning crescent Moon stars in a series of conjunctions in this week's predawn sky as it passes Jupiter, then Venus, and finally Saturn.
The planet to the left of the moon is Venus, and above the Moon, barely visible is the Comet 46P Wirtanen slowly fading away.
The Sunlight reflected from Earth gently illuminated the right portion of the moon.
The Moon and Venus made a dazzling pair from the time they raised until about 7:00am.
