if you have a smart phone... i downloaded a handy little app that tells me where the moon is and all the stars and planets. you can search for them and it guides you to the planet youre after, and also comes in handy when you see a planet in the sky and arent sure which one it is. the app is Google Sky Map.

Your wish granted! Unfortunately, the 'earthshine' was quite bright, so the moon doesn't look crescent here. But the line up - Jupiter, the moon and Venus - has come out well.
