We're a couple of days into a new moon, and a thin crescent is hanging in the deep blue of the evening twilight sky, slowly tracking downwards towards the western horizon.
This must be my favourite phase of the moon, with its delicate shape set in the glowing dusk skies.
Visible from my front drive, it was a no-brainer really to set up my camera to record a small portion of its passing.
No doubt I'll be marvelling at it again in four weeks' time!
