looked for Moon and Mars (Bradford)

Grabbed my specs and headed to the backyard, avoiding the light sensor. Ooh. Clouds as I turned the corner, looking south. Right, I had seen rain forecast in the evening. Windy too. In the yard, on the shoofing grass, bunnies watching me no doubt, I did not see the Moon or Mars. Oop. There they are. Over the east hedge. Moved a best west. Wow. Clear patch of sky. The Moon is waning. Mars was bright. Seemed to have some dimension. Is that possible? Measured the separation of the two celestial bodies: one fist. Ten degrees.
