Slowly, the night getd darker. On emore time, I move my tripod to put the Moon and Venus in holes in the naked branches of this beech plunged in the winter chill.
Now, the earthshine is evident. Another star has appeared in the prolongation of the Moon's horns, toward the bottom. It's HIP113531, a poor magnitude 6 satr. Did you noticed the the light dot on the upper right of Venus? It's Lambda Aquarii.
