Years last Moon

Just seems with naked eye the Waning Crescent Moon 28,55 days old rise above the Old Fortress of Corfu, a Unesco World Heritage, with planet Saturn just 5,3° right of it, out of the picture.

Perhaps this will be the last Moon of 2016, but there is a change tomorrow morning just a few minutes before the sunrise to capture it as 29,50 days old with Mercury just at 1,23° on the right.

The Moon was 401100km(249232mi) away from us with maximum distance on Christmas day at 405870km(252196mi) away, while the foreground is just 7km(4.35mi) away.
