Looking Into The Twilight

For this week’s post, I want to share with you some photos I took in the twilight just after sunset. In these photos, I captured some of the usual suspects such as the moon and Venus, but also a few other things.

In the photos, you can see the moon is still a crescent but is fast approaching its first quarter and by looking closely at Venus you may notice a dark area of covering much of it this is because Venus is currently far from the sun in the sky and so appears as a crescent as well. And then we have the twin stars Pollux and Castor the heads of the constellation Gemini but in reality, there are not two stars, but seven Pollux is an old grant star reaching the end of its day while Castor is a hub of activity with six different stars all orbiting one another.

So that’s it for this week I hope you enjoy the photos and to see you next week.
