Planets over Pony Express Lake


Beautiful sunset
sky colors
are reflected in
Pony Express Lake in
twilight skyview
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
streak the almost-calm lake waters.
