Crescent Moonrise over Budapest

By: György Soponyai


Budapest, Hungary

2013 December 1


From the photographer: "On 1st December 2013 the dawn sky promised a wonderful phenomena with the rising crescent Moon (43 hours before New Moon phase), Saturn and Mercury. Three days after the perihelion of comet ISON - I had been planning to capture this photo for a long time. ISON had disintegrated during the rendezvous with the Sun however the "remaining" scene was still marvelous with Budapest in the foreground. The bank of Danube river with the Chain Bridge (Lánchíd - the oldest bridge of the city) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site."
