Planets over Pony Express Lake


Explanation:

Beautiful sunset
sky colors
are reflected in
Pony Express Lake in
this
twilight skyview
from
northern Missouri, USA, planet Earth.

Recorded on Monday, a two day old crescent Moon and
brilliant planet Venus shine through thin clouds.

Joining the
conjunction on the right of the Moon's
sunlit crescent is fellow
wanderer Saturn, with Regulus, alpha star of the
constellation Leo, above and right of Venus.

Moonlight and
Venus
light
streak the almost-calm lake waters.
