Crescent Venus and Young Moon

Colle Braida, Turin, Italy

2010 November 05


From the photographer: "This image was taken on November 5, 2010 at 6:45 a.m. from 'Colle Braida', a mountain pass in the Alps at 1,000 meters above sea level and 50 kilometers from Turin, Italy. The image shows a close conjunction between a 2% illuminated waning crescent Moon and Venus (also in a crescent phase after its inferior conjunction of late October) when the lovely pair were visible in the twilight colors above a fog carpet that was covering the valley below, resembling sea waves." - Stefano De Rosa
