Moon looking up at Venus in San Diego, California. Captured by Ludy D'Angelo

Greetings from sunny California. Hope every one is having, or had a great holiday season. We started our vacation by arriving in San Diego and I am writing this currently in Oakhurst. This week I have been enjoying the Moon and Venus in the early evening. The sky here is amazingly clear. If you locate yourself above the city lights (i.e., on a mountain), one can have some very nice views of the night sky. In California, this tends not to be a problem in many places. Many towns and cities are positioned low in the valleys, so mountain tops are easily accessible.  Also, it is mostly dry, which contributes to the very good seeing. I have been enjoying looking up every night.
