Moon and Pleiades Occultation

No noctilucent cloud this morning, instead we were treated to the crescent moon uncovering the last of the bright Pleiades stars. The images are about 20 seconds apart with Atlas appearing in the second one.

This wide angle view was taken about 20 minutes earlier.

Mars is below the moon, Aldebaran is just above the roof and a very bright Venus to the left.
