Crescent Venus

Crescent Venus

Venus just overtook us in its orbit and has transitioned, quite quickly, from an evening object to a dawn object. It is relatively close to the Sun from Earth’s viewpoint, and the closer it is, the thinner the crescent. Anything within our orbit goes through phases, similarly to the Moon.
