If you look closely, and use some imagination, you can see the rings of Saturn going from upper left to lower right on the planet to the right. Meanwhile, Venus is just too bright to show that it is actually a crescent. Through my telescope I could see the cresent of Venus and the rings of Saturn but my camera just couldn't cope with the telescope and could not quite capture the same scene with it's own telephoto lens.
Oh, they were in the west just after sunset and were quite close together on July 1, 2007.
