showing up near the moon right now in North America? I'm in Missouri and have shot at the moon crescent mostly just to figure out how, etc., and two nights ago there was a faint red crescent and a faint bluish-green crescent near the moon crescent. Today it was pretty obvious that the green crescent was another spherical object - is it Venus? Was the other Mars?
Mostly curiosity. I had originally wondered if they were an artifact of some sort.
