Crescent Moon and Venus over the Atlantic

By: Miguel Claro

 

Costa da Caparica, Portugal

2011 November 27

 

From the photographer: "In the image we see the crescent moon in the constellation Sagittarius. Below them, 3-degrees above the horizon, is the planet Venus. The moon shows a strong Earthshine effect for being just 9% directly illuminated by the Sun. The image was taken in Costa da Caparica beach, facing the Atlantic Ocean. In this same night I have made a time-lapse video of this crescent moonset."
