Picture of the Month - July 2007

This is one of the rarest image I have ever seen. Well, I guess you can't see anything other than the blue sky with some clouds in it. Click on the picture for a clear view. You can see a very thin crescent Moon and a crescent Venus next to it. Click here to know more about the 'Phases of Venus'. Both Moon and Venus are bright enough to be seen in the daylight (few minutes before sunset). This image was taken at Budapest, Hungary. Few minutes after this photograph was taken the Moon eclipsed the planet.
