I waited an waited for the clouds to clear out before the Moon an Venus sunk behinde the horizion. I even gave up an left the house to get x-mas lights for the house,I got 1/2 mile away an saw the clouds clear out a little, drove back home,got the tri-pod an my CanonT1i with 200-500mm lens,set it at AV (1 sec,ISO400,F4) an got 3 frames, this one was the best out 3 due to clouds,(there was a jet passing above the moon)

Here are some images of the conjunction as seen from Sun City, CA under a crystal clear sky over the Santa Ana Mountains.
