lunar and solar phenomena (York region)

On leaving the house to catch the train, I spotted a very thin old crescent Moon. It grew increasingly difficult to see as it rose into a bright sky.

Later I spotted iridescent clouds. There was an extremely bright rapidly evolving spectrum of intense colour left of the Sun and close-in to the right mottled opalescent pigments.

On the way home, my heart sank as the high and low cloud cover increased. I had hoped to spot Venus naked eye near the Moon... Mr Markov had encouraged everyone to try.
