A Cosmic Joke?

Last Monday night, I looked up at the sky from the back door of our rented house in Kudat and it seemed like the moon was smiling down at me.

I have never before seen two stars (actually, the one on the left is, I think, the planet Venus) placed above a sickle moon. It seemed to me as if the moon was laughing at some cosmic joke. Wish I knew what it was!

Wow! What an amazing moment - maybe the moon saw the dish running away with the spoon? xx

Hey, Belle, I just read your comment. I'm still chuckling! You, with your interest in astronomy and the night sky, would have been as gob-smacked as me!
