Today's image is a bit different than usual.  I have a friend who is into astronomy and works at an observatory and she alerted me to this event.  Last weekend Venus which has been closer to earth than usual in it's orbit, was near the constellation of the Seven Sisters (AKA, the Little Dipper).  This is my attempt to capture it.  There was a bit of movement captured due to the long lens I was using and the exposure time.  I probably should have tried with a normal but I didn't want to crop.  Ah well, trade offs.  So, in the image, Venus is the brightest and the others are that look like a dipper are the Seven Sisters plus a few extra.  😀
