Celestial Bodies

The moon, as I don’t recall seeing it before. Whereas usually light from the sun illuminates the surface of the moon from one side across its face to the other, at the moment sun, earth and moon are lined up in such a way that the moon is being struck ‘from below’ by sunlight bouncing off the earth.

The bright dot beneath the moon is Venus. It looks like nothing in the photo, but it was stunning to the naked eye this evening…
