You got it just about closest approach, with about 4 degrees separation. Very occasionally Venus will pass directly behind the moon, making it an occultation, which is a huge astronomical event. The same very rarely occurs for other major planets such as Jupiter and Saturn.
Those things are usually only visible in China or Antarctica
More frequently the crescent Moon occults part of the Pleiades star cluster in the Spring.
That would have also been a beautiful image about 20 minutes before sunrise, a nice wide angle (maybe 50-100mm or so) landscape, with a suitable scene facing east, putting the two closer in the image. About 10am yesterday I figured out that I missed that . I'd been so focused on getting that Chasing the Moons post done, and studying the happenings of the 15th-16th that I forgot to check what was happening the next day!
An aside on yesterdays's moon: My son has to get picked up at the school bus stop at 6:40am so I drop him off then exercise at our clubhouse before heading to work. On this particular morning I noticed the moon and thought boy that sure would make a nice photo, but we were already in the car so no photo op. As luck would have it, I didn't have my key card so I returned home to get it... and took to the opportunity to get what I could, of course by then the light had changed the sky was brighter.
Tried to post one this morning but I forgot to resize and didn't get it in here. Its on my FB page but I'll posting it here tonight. I'm going to have to start a Moon Gallery.
