Moon, Venus and Mercury

Moon, Venus, and Mercury (L to R). And, a light from a boat.
Phil Plait's post alerted me to this alignment tonight, and the view over Lake Washington (in Melbourne, Florida) was marvelous (but overrun with mosquitos).
This is about 45 minutes after #Sunset, and the Moon was only about 2.4% illuminated, but ISO4000 brought out some faint details in the dark non-illuminated section of the Moon's face. (I believe that's called Earthshine.)
