The moon, whilst interesting in it's own right, can be a royal pain for observing anything else, since it brightens the sky so much. This was a quarter moon near sunset on a clear evening. Venus and the Pleiades heading toward the sunset, with the moon following along. The line between the moon and Venus is known as the ecliptic - the plane in which the planets all orbit.
Above Venus, you can see the Hyades - the large < shape, being the horns of Taurus, the bull. Then above that, most of Orion as we see it south of the equator - upside down (:
This is a closer shot of just Venus and the Pleiades
