Did You See What We Saw?

John and Doug and I saw the awesome evening light show Sunday night, but we didn't realize at the time that it was an 'event.' It was just beautiful! I kept watching it even as we drove back into LA. Here are two cool pictures from if you haven't seen them already.

Venus, Jupiter and the crescent moon appeared so bright and so close together Sunday night that they appeared as a smiley face in the sky in the Southern Hemisphere (Melbourne, Australia, below),

and a frowning face in the Northern Hemisphere (Manhattan, New York, below).
Now I have the words and music from "Little Drummer Boy" in my head. Pretty appropriate. :)

I did see it too, but I was driving across the Ravenel Bridge at the time, it was that beautiful time of sunset with the glowing orange melting in a rainbow to the dark indigo sky quite like your first picture... It couldn't have been more beautiful at that moment... God creates the most amazing artwork!
