Moon and Venus

Took this image last week from the bedroom window! A lovely view of a VERY bright Venus and the cresent Moon. Venus is beautiful at te moment, brighter than I have ever seen it and high in the Southern sky. It dominates this direction!
I'm certain that Venus is bright enough to cast a shadow, I may try to prove it!
Tonight is clear with a lovely, bright Moon but the temperature outside is about -6. The last week has brought record snowfall throughout the country, the South of England has virtually ground to a halt! meanwhile, here in the North, where we are used to snow, we have not had much!
I have always said that the first week in February brings the worst (or best) snow. I remember this from the past when I was at school. Schools never closed then!
