In the end of year 2000, the Crescent Moon and Venus were paralleling in the western skies. And it's the silhouetted mountain range of Japan Southern Alps against the gradation of bluish sky. The Moon and Venus approached closest in next day, but I couldn't appreciate the view because of bad weather.
