Southwestern sky, I believe. My daughter and I drove home from Southlake tonight down 26 and watched them set.
Good catch, thanks. I've updated it in the post.

Neptune is not visible to the naked eye. You can easily find it with a telescope or with a little more difficulty a pair of binoculars. To do this, you should be away from the city lights.

Whisker-thin waxing crescent moon near Jupiter and Saturn on Wednesday at 5:45pm December 16, 2020 (southwestern sky from Fort Worth, TX) [Let me know if this sounds right]
Interesting article about this event. Hopefully the skies are clear Dec 21...I'll try to remember to get another shot.

That is a fantastic shot. You are correct in that the two planets in the upper portion are Saturn and Jupiter. It's great that you also caught the moon in the photograph.

Here it is zoomed but untouched:

Nice. They definitely appear farther apart than they did with the naked eye last night. I saw an amazing photo from Sunday night where you could make out 4 of Jupiter's moons and Saturn's rings. It was taken through the lense of a telescope with an iPhone. I could not believe the clarity.

JBB, I saw the same amazing photograph and I was surprised. I tried to take some last night, but mine did not come out well.

I didn't catch it tonight, but I did see it rise from my bedroom window on Monday, just about the exact time it was officially full. I tried to take a picture of it, but it didn't turn out from inside the house.
