From the photographer: "The moon and Venus share the evening sky in this beautiful conjunction. After the moon, Venus is the brightest object in the night sky. The planet Venus is named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty. In Kurdish ancient cultures Venus is named Vinus (vi:nu:s), the goddess of beauty." - Farzin Hossaini
