Moon and the Southern Triumvirate

On 7 of September the Moon was  visible to the West-North West of the triangle formed by Saturn , Mars and Antares.
I recorded this pretty celestial landscape with the tripod mounted Coolpix S3300.









The show must go on ...and it goes on !

Update of 8 September 2016 :

This evening the Moon is really much closer to the so-called Triumvirate but the conjunction of Moon and Saturn didn't happen yet.

Update of  9 September 2016:

Setting the stage for tonight's show :
               
                                                     



The light of the First Quarter Moon was reflected by the wavy waters of Mures River.

                                                      

The Moon was to the North of  planet Mars when the pics were taken at about nine o'clock Local Time.

                                                      

Some more pics with different settings  before saying ''goodbye'' to this Shallow Sky configuration.
